bos_adduser - Adds a privileged user to the UserList file
bos adduser -server <machine name> -user <user names>+
[-cell <cell name>] [-noauth] [-localauth] [-help]
bos addu -s <machine name> -u <user names>+
[-c <cell name>] [-n] [-l] [-h]
The bos adduser command adds each user name specified with the -user
argument to the /etc/openafs/server/UserList file on the machine named
by the -server argument. It is the issuer’s responsibility to verify
that an entry for the user exists in the Authentication and Protection
-server <machine name>
Indicates the server machine on which to change the
/etc/openafs/server/UserList file. Identify the machine by IP
address or its host name (either fully-qualified or abbreviated
unambiguously). For details, see bos(8).
In cells that use the Update Server to distribute the contents of
the /etc/openafs/server directory, it is conventional to specify
only the system control machine as a value for the -server
argument. Otherwise, repeat the command for each file server
machine. For further discussion, see bos(8).
-user <user names>+
Specifies each user name to insert into the
-cell <cell name>
Names the cell in which to run the command. Do not combine this
argument with the -localauth flag. For more details, see bos(8).
Assigns the unprivileged identity "anonymous" to the issuer. Do not
combine this flag with the -localauth flag. For more details, see
Constructs a server ticket using a key from the local
/etc/openafs/server/KeyFile file. The bos command interpreter
presents the ticket to the BOS Server during mutual authentication.
Do not combine this flag with the -cell or -noauth options. For
more details, see bos(8).
Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options
The following command adds the user names "pat" and "smith" to the
/etc/openafs/server/UserList file on the machine "fs1.abc.com" (the
system control machine).
% bos adduser -server fs1.abc.com -user pat smith
The issuer must be listed in the /etc/openafs/server/UserList file on
the machine named by the -server argument, or must be logged onto a
server machine as the local superuser "root" if the -localauth flag is
