Is there a way to prevent users to access a selected AFS volume for some time 
without affecting the access to the other volumes on the same or on other 
file servers & partitions? 

I would like also to be able to stop any current activity on the volume 

In our AFS cell I have observed that there is a small numer of Volumes that 
appear as "Off-line" from vos examine or vos listvol command.
Typically these "Off-line" volume have another version which is marked 
"On-line" on a different server/partition.
I have the impression that the only way to set a volume "off-line" is from 
command vos restore -offline, is that true?
So off-line ha probably nothing to do with what I am looking for.

Any suggestions?
