       bos delete - Deletes a server process from the BosConfig file


       bos delete << -server <machine name >>>
           << -instance <server process name+ >>> << [-cell <cell name] >>>
           [-noauth] [-localauth] [-help]

       bos d << -s <machine name >>> << -i <server process name+ >>>
           << [-c <cell name] >>> [-n] [-l] [-h]


       The bos delete command removes the /etc/openafs/BosConfig entry for
       each process indicated by the -instance argument, on the server machine
       named by the -server argument.

       Before issuing this command, issue the bos stop command to stop the
       process and set its status flag in the BosConfig file to NotRun. The
       bos delete command fails with an error message if a process’s status
       flag is Run.


       -server <machine name>
           Indicates the server machine on which to delete the server process
           entry from the /etc/openafs/BosConfig file. Identify the machine by
           IP address or its host name (either fully-qualified or abbreviated
           unambiguously). For details, see the bos(8) manpage.

       -instance <server process name>+
           Names each process to delete. Use the name assigned with the
           -instance argument to the bos create command; process names appear
           in the output of the bos status command.

       -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 the bos(8)

           Assigns the unprivileged identity anonymous to the issuer. Do not
           combine this flag with the -localauth flag. For more details, see
           the bos(8) manpage.

           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 the bos(8) manpage.

           Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options
           are ignored.


       The following command removes the buserver, kaserver, ptserver, and
       vlserver entries from the BosConfig file on, a database
       server machine being decommissioned.

          % bos delete -server \
              -instance buserver kaserver ptserver vlserver


       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
