NAME

       pts_adduser - Adds a user or machine to a Protection Database group

SYNOPSIS

       pts adduser -user <user name>+ -group <group name>+
           [-cell <cell name>] [-noauth] [-localauth] [-force] [-help]
           [-auth] [-encrypt] [-config <config directory>]

       pts ad -u <user name>+ -g <group name>+
           [-c <cell name>] [-n] [-l] [-f] [-h]
           [-a] [-e] [-co <config directory>]

DESCRIPTION

       The pts adduser command adds each user or machine entry named by the -user argument as a
       member of each group named by the -group argument.

       To remove members of a group, use the pts removeuser command. To list the groups to which
       a user or machine belongs, or the members of a specified group, use the pts membership
       command.

CAUTIONS

       After being added as a group member, a currently authenticated user must reauthenticate
       (for example, by issuing the aklog or klog.krb5 commands) to obtain permissions granted to
       the group on an access control list (ACL).

OPTIONS

       -user <user name>+
           Specifies the name of each user or machine entry to add to each group named by the
           -group argument. The name of a machine entry resembles an IP address and can use the
           wildcard notation described on the pts createuser reference page. The user or machine
           entry must already exist in the Protection Database.

       -group <group name>+
           Specifies the complete name (including the owner prefix if applicable) of each group
           to which to add members. The group entry must already exist in the Protection
           Database.

       -auth
           Use the calling user's tokens to communicate with the Protection Server. For more
           details, see pts(1).

       -cell <cell name>
           Names the cell in which to run the command. For more details, see pts(1).

       -config <config directory>
           Use an alternate config directory. For more details, see pts(1).

       -encrypt
           Encrypts any communication with the Protection Server. For more details, see pts(1).

       -force
           Enables the command to continue executing as far as possible when errors or other
           problems occur, rather than halting execution at the first error.

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

       -localauth
           Constructs a server ticket using a key from the local /etc/openafs/server/KeyFile
           file. Do not combine this flag with the -cell or -noauth options. For more details,
           see pts(1).

       -noauth
           Assigns the unprivileged identity anonymous to the issuer. For more details, see
           pts(1).

EXAMPLES

       The following example adds user smith to the group system:administrators.

          % pts adduser -user smith -group system:administrators

       The following example adds users "jones", "terry", and pat to the smith:colleagues group.

          % pts adduser -user jones terry pat -group smith:colleagues

       The following example adds the machine entries in the Example Corporation subnet to the
       group "bin-prot". Because of the IP address range of the Example Corporation subnet, the
       system administrator was able to group the machines into three machine entries (using the
       wildcard notation discussed on the pts createuser reference page).

          % pts adduser -user 138.255.0.0 192.12.105.0 192.12.106.0 -group bin-prot

PRIVILEGE REQUIRED

       The required privilege depends on the setting of the fourth privacy flag in the Protection
       Database entry for each group named by the -group argument (use the pts examine command to
       display the flags):

       ·   If it is the hyphen, only the group's owner and members of the system:administrators
           group can add members.

       ·   If it is lowercase "a", current members of the group can add new members.

       ·   If it is uppercase "A", anyone who can access the cell's database server machines can
           add new members.
