|-server <machine name>||
Indicates the server machine on which to change the
/usr/local/etc/openafs/server/KeyFile 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).
|-key <key>||Specifies a character string just like a password; the BOS Server calls a DES conversion function to encode it into a form appropriate for use as an encryption key. Omit this argument to have the BOS Server prompt for the string instead.|
|-kvno <key version number>||Defines the new keys key version number. It must be an integer in the range from 0 (zero) through 255. For the sake of simplicity, use the number one higher than the current highest key version number; use the bos listkeys command to display key version numbers.|
|-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 /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.|
If the strings typed at the Input key and Retype input key prompts do not match, the following message appears, and the command exits without adding a new key:
Input key mismatch
The following command adds a new server encryption key with key version number 14 to the KeyFile file kept on the machine fs1.abc.com (the system control machine). The issuer omits the -key argument, as recommended, and provides the password at the prompts.
% bos addkey -server fs1.abc.com -kvno 14 Input key: Retype input key:
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.
