|-server <machine name>||
Identifies the server machine on which to change the
/usr/local/etc/openafs/server/CellServDB 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 /usr/local/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).
|-host <host name>+||Specifies the fully-qualified host name (such as db1.abc.com) of each database server machine to register in the CellServDB 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).|
|-clone||Register the host given by -host as a non-voting clone site, which prevents the host from becoming a sync-site. This is an advanced feature and should be used with caution.|
|-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 /usr/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.|
The following command adds the database server machines db2.abc.com and db3.abc.com to the /usr/local/etc/openafs/server/CellServDB file on the machine fs1.abc.com (the system control machine).
% bos addhost -server fs1.abc.com -host db2.abc.com db3.abc.com
The issuer must be listed in the /usr/local/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.
