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

/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 issuer must be listed in the /etc/openafs/server/UserList
file on the
