       bos_uninstall - Reverts to the former version of a process’s binary


       bos uninstall -server <machine name>
           -file <files to uninstall>+ [-dir <destination dir>]
           [-cell <cell name>] [-noauth] [-localauth] [-help]

       bos u -s <machine name> -f <files to uninstall>+
           [-d <destination dir>] [-c <cell name>] [-n] [-l]


       The bos uninstall command replaces each binary file specified by the
       -file argument with its ".BAK" version on the server machine named by
       the -server argument, which is normally the binary distribution machine
       for its CPU/operating system type. It also changes the extension on the
       current ".OLD" version (if any) to ".BAK". Each binary file must reside
       in the local /usr/lib/openafs directory unless the -dir argument names
       an alternate directory.

       To start using the reverted binary immediately, issue the bos restart
       command. Otherwise, the BOS Server automatically restarts the process
       at the time defined in the /etc/openafs/BosConfig file; use the bos
       getrestart command to display the time and the bos setrestart time to
       set it.


       -server <machine name>
           Indicates the binary distribution machine on which to revert to the
           ".BAK" version of binaries. Identify the machine by IP address or
           its host name (either fully-qualified or abbreviated
           unambiguously). For details, see bos(8).

           If the machine is not a binary distribution machine and is running
           an "upclientbin" process, then the files are overwritten the next
           time the "upclientbin" process fetches the corresponding file from
           the distribution machine (by default within five minutes).

       -file <files to uninstall>+
           Names each binary file to replace with its ".BAK" version.

       -dir <destinatino dir>
           Provides the complete pathname of the local disk directory
           containing each file named by the -file argument. It is necessary
           only if the binaries are not in the /usr/lib/openafs directory.

       -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
           are ignored.


       The following example command overwrites the /usr/lib/openafs/kaserver
       file on the machine "" with its ".BAK" version, and the
       current ".BAK" version by the ".OLD" version.

          % bos uninstall -server -file kaserver


       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
