       bos_uninstall - Reverts to the former version of a process's binary file


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

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


       The bos uninstall command replaces each binary file specified by the -file argument with
       its ".BAK" version on the server machine named by the -server argument, which is normally
       the binary distribution machine for its CPU/operating system type. It also changes the
       extension on the current ".OLD" version (if any) to ".BAK". Each binary file must reside
       in the local /usr/lib/openafs directory unless the -dir argument names an alternate

       To start using the reverted binary immediately, issue the bos restart command. Otherwise,
       the BOS Server automatically restarts the process at the time defined in the
       /etc/openafs/BosConfig file; use the bos getrestart command to display the time and the
       bos setrestart time to set it.


       -server <machine name>
           Indicates the binary distribution machine on which to revert to the ".BAK" version of
           binaries. Identify the machine by IP address or its host name (either fully-qualified
           or abbreviated unambiguously). For details, see bos(8).

           If the machine is not a binary distribution machine and is running an "upclientbin"
           process, then the files are overwritten the next time the "upclientbin" process
           fetches the corresponding file from the distribution machine (by default within five

       -file <files to uninstall>+
           Names each binary file to replace with its ".BAK" version.

       -dir <destinatino dir>
           Provides the complete pathname of the local disk directory containing each file named
           by the -file argument. It is necessary only if the binaries 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).

           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 or
           /etc/openafs/server/KeyFileExt 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 overwrites the /usr/lib/openafs/kaserver file on the machine
       "" with its ".BAK" version, and the current ".BAK" version by the ".OLD"

          % bos uninstall -server -file kaserver


       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.

       The bos uninstall command cannot be run against servers running in restricted mode.
