       bos_stop - Stops a process after changing its status flag


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

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


       The bos stop command sets the status flag for each process specified
       with the -instance argument to "NotRun" in the /etc/openafs/BosConfig
       file on the server machine named by the -server argument, then stops

       To stop a process without changing its BosConfig status flag, use the
       bos shutdown command instead.


       -server <machine name>
           Indicates the server machine on which to stop processes. Identify
           the machine by IP address or its host name (either fully-qualified
           or abbreviated unambiguously). For details, see bos(8).

       -instance <server process name>+
           Names each process to stop. Use the process name assigned with the
           -instance argument to the bos create command. The output from the
           bos status command lists the names.

           Delays the return of the command shell prompt until all processes
           actually stop. If this argument is omitted, the prompt returns
           almost immediately even if all processes are not stopped.

       -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 bos(8).

           Assigns the unprivileged identity "anonymous" to the issuer. Do not
           combine this flag with the -localauth flag. For more details, see

           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 following example command stops the upserver and runntp processes
       on the machine "".

          % bos stop -server -instance upserver runntp


       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
