     es.

SYNOPSIS
     bos [addhost | addkey | adduser | create] [args]
     bos [delete | exec | getdate | getlog] [args]
     bos [getrestart | install | listhosts | listkeys] [args]
     bos [listusers | prune | removehost | removekey] [args]
     bos [removeuser | restart | salvage | setauth] [args]
     bos [setcellname | setrestart | shutdown | start] [args]
     bos [stop | uninstall] [args]

DESCRIPTION
     The bos utility is the client part of the Basic overseer daemon that man-
     age AFS server processes.

     Most bos commands accept the following general arguments:

           [-cell cellname] Specifies which AFS cell to use, if the default
           cell is not to be used.

           [-noauth] Specifies that bos should not try to authenticate the
           connection to the server.  This may be useful with shell scripts,
           or if there is a problem with the AFS cell.  Note that the server
           will reject many commands if -noauth is specified.

           [-localauth] Create a ticket using the AFS server key, that is, you
           don't need a token.  This will generally only work on AFS servers,
           and is very useful for performing automatic tasks.

     bos has several subcommands:

     addhost -server server -host host [-cell cellname] [-noauth] [-localauth]
           Add a new host to the CellServDB on the server.  This makes the
           database server consider host as a peer and will use when they syn-
           chronize their databases (the database servers) need to be restart-
           ed.

     addkey -server server [-key key] [-kvno keyversionnumber] [-cell
     cellname] [-noauth] [-localauth]
           Add a new afs-key to the KeyFile.  Add the ticket specified in key
           with keyversionnumber to the server.

     adduser -server server -user user [-cell cellname] [-noauth] [-localauth]
           Add a new user the SuperUser file on the fileserver server, thus
           giving that user the right to manage volumes and bosserver.

     create -server server -instance serverprocessname -type servertype -cmd
     command [-notifier program] [-cell cellname] [-noauth] [-localauth]
           Create a new service instance at the server of type.  The instance
           will depending on type run the command command.

     delete -server server -instance instance [-cell cellname] [-noauth]
     [-localauth]
           Delete the instance from the server.

     exec
           -server server -cmd command [-cell cellname] [-noauth] [-localauth]
           Execute command on the server server.

     getdate -server server -files checkfiles [-dir dir] [-cell cellname]
     [-noauth] [-localauth]
           Get dates for checkfiles in server-root directory (that can be
           specified with dir if that is needed) on server.

     getlog -server server -file logfile [-cell cellname] [-noauth]
     [-localauth]
           List the content of the logfile that resides on the server.

     getrestart -server server [-dir dest] [-cell cellname] [-noauth]
     [-localauth]
           Get the restart time from server.
