       bos_adduser - Adds a privileged user to the UserList file


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

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


       The bos adduser command adds each user name specified with the -user argument to the
       /etc/openafs/server/UserList file on the machine named by the -server argument. It is the
       issuer's responsibility to verify that an entry for the user exists in the Authentication
       and Protection Databases.


       -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 bos(8).

           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 bos(8).

       -user <user names>+
           Specifies each user name to insert into the /etc/openafs/server/UserList file.

       -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 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 following command adds the user names "pat" and "smith" to the
       /etc/openafs/server/UserList file on the machine "" (the system control

          % bos adduser -server -user pat smith


       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 included.
