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>+

bos delete command fails with an error message if a process's status
flag is "Run".
