Yes, after deleting the entries from VLDB the syncvldb updates VLDB with th=
shadow volumes (didn't try on a per volume, but only on a server basis).=20
Sorry if that wasn't clear from my original mail.=20

My point was that the manpage explicitly says that running syncvldb will up=
the VLDB right away which does not seem to be the case.

So: the behaviour is correct and the manpage is not.
