bos_listhosts - Displays the contents of the CellServDB file
bos listhosts -server
bos listh -s

bos getc -s
< cell name
The bos listhosts
command formats and displays the list of a cell's
database server machines from the /etc/openafs/server/CellServDB
on the server machine named by the -server
To alter the list of machines, use the bos addhost
- -server <machine name>
- Indicates the server machine from which to display the
/etc/openafs/server/CellServDB file. Identify the machine by IP
address or its host name (either fully-qualified or abbreviated
unambiguously). For details, see bos(8).
For consistent performance in the cell, the output must be the same on every
server machine. The bos addhost reference page explains how to keep
the machines synchronized.
- -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.
The first line of the output names the cell to which the server machine belongs.
Each of the following lines names a database server machine for that cell.
The "Host" number assigned to each database server machine is for
server-internal use only and is not the same as, nor necessarily related to,
the machine's IP address. The BOS Server assigned it as part of performing the
The following command displays the database server machines listed in the
file on the machine
% bos listhosts fs7.abc.com
Cell name is abc.com
Host 1 is db1.abc.com
Host 2 is db2.abc.com
Host 3 is db3.abc.com
