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
-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
The following example command overwrites the /usr/lib/openafs/kaserver
file on the machine "fs4.abc.com" with its ".BAK" version, and the
current ".BAK" version by the ".OLD" version.
% bos uninstall -server fs4.abc.com -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
