NAME

       bos_getdate - Displays the time stamps on an AFS binary file

SYNOPSIS

       bos getdate -server <machine name> -file <files to check>+
           [-dir <destination dir>] [-cell <cell name>]
           [-noauth] [-localauth] [-help]

       bos getd -s <machine name> -f <files to check>+
           [-d <destination dir>] [-c <cell name>] [-n] [-l]
           [-h]

DESCRIPTION

       The bos getdate command displays the time stamps on the current version," .BAK" version
       (if any) and ".OLD" version (if any) of each binary file named by the -file argument. (The
       BOS Server automatically creates ".BAK" and ".OLD" versions when new binaries are
       installed with the bos install command.) The files must reside in the /usr/lib/openafs
       directory on the server machine named by the -server argument unless the -dir argument
       indicates an alternate directory.

       To revert to the ".BAK" version of a binary, use the bos uninstall command. To remove
       obsolete binary files from the /usr/lib/openafs directory, use the bos prune command.

OPTIONS

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

           All server machines of the same AFS system type show the same timestamps if the
           binaries were installed properly on the binary distribution machine for this machine's
           system type, and if all other machines of that type are running the appropriate
           "upclientbin" process.

       -file <files to check>+
           Names each binary file to list.

       -dir <destination dir>
           Specifies the complete pathname of the local disk directory containing each file named
           by the -file argument. It is necessary only if the files are not in the
           /usr/lib/openafs directory.

       -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).

       -noauth
           Assigns the unprivileged identity "anonymous" to the issuer. Do not combine this flag
           with the -localauth flag. For more details, see bos(8).

       -localauth
           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).

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

OUTPUT

       For each file specified with the -file argument, the output displays the time stamp on the
       current (unmarked), ".BAK", and ".OLD" version. The output explicitly reports that a
       version does not exist, rather than simply omitting it.

EXAMPLES

       The following command examines the time stamps on the files with basename "kaserver" on
       the machine "fs2.abc.com":

          % bos getdate -server fs2.abc.com -file kaserver
          File /usr/lib/openafs/kaserver dated Mon Jan 4 10:00:36 1999.
          .BAK file dated Wed Dec 9 18:55:04 1998, no .OLD file.

PRIVILEGE REQUIRED

       None
