       bos removeuser - Removes a privileged user from the UserList file


       bos removeuser << -server <machine name >>> << -user <user names+ >>>
           << [-cell <cell name] >>> [-noauth] [-localauth] [-help]

       bos removeu << -s <machine name >>> << -u <user names+ >>>
           << [-c <cell name] >>> [-n] [-l] [-h]


       The bos removeuser command removes each user name specified with the
       -user argument from the /etc/openafs/server/UserList file on the
       machine named by the -server argument.


       -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 the bos(8) manpage.

           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 discussion, see the bos(8) manpage.

       -user <user names>+
           Specifies each user name to remove.

       -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 example removes the users pat and jones from the UserList
       file on the system control machine

          % bos removeuser -server -user pat jones


       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
