bos_getdate - Displays the time stamps on an AFS binary file
bos getdate -server
< files to check
< cell name
bos getd -s
< files to check
< cell name
The bos getdate
command displays the time stamps on the current
version," .BAK" version (if any) and ".OLD" version (if
any) of each binary file named by the -file
argument. (The BOS Server
automatically creates ".BAK" and ".OLD" versions when new
binaries are installed with the bos install
command.) The files must
reside in the /usr/lib/openafs
directory on the server machine named by
argument unless the -dir
argument indicates an
To revert to the ".BAK" version of a binary, use the bos
command. To remove obsolete binary files from the
directory, use the bos prune
- -server <machine name>
- Indicates the server machine from which to list binary
files. Identify the machine by IP address or its host name (either
fully-qualified or abbreviated unambiguously). For details, see
All server machines of the same AFS system type show the same timestamps if
the binaries were installed properly on the binary distribution machine
for this machine's system type, and if all other machines of that type are
running the appropriate "upclientbin" process.
- -file <files to check>+
- Names each binary file to list.
- -dir <destination dir>
- Specifies the complete pathname of the local disk directory
containing each file named by the -file argument. It is necessary
only if the files 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
- Assigns the unprivileged identity "anonymous" to
the issuer. Do not combine this flag with the -localauth flag. For
more details, see bos(8).
- 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.
For each file specified with the -file argument, the output displays the time
stamp on the current (unmarked), ".BAK", and ".OLD"
version. The output explicitly reports that a version does not exist, rather
than simply omitting it.
The following command examines the time stamps on the files with basename
"kaserver" on the machine "fs2.abc.com":
% bos getdate -server fs2.abc.com -file kaserver
File /usr/lib/openafs/kaserver dated Mon Jan 4 10:00:36 1999.
.BAK file dated Wed Dec 9 18:55:04 1998, no .OLD file.
