bos_setrestricted - place a server in restricted mode
bos setrestricted -server <machine name> -mode 1 [-cell <cell name>] [-noauth] [-localauth] [-help]
The bos setrestricted command places the server in restricted mode. This mode increases the security of the bos server by removing access to a number of bos commands that are only used whilst configuring a system.
When a server is in restricted mode, access to bos_exec, bos uninstall, bos install, bos create, bos delete, bos prune is denied, and the use of bos getlog is limited.
Once a server has been placed in restricted mode, it may not be opened up again using a remote command. That is, bos setrestricted has no method of setting an unrestricted mode. Once a server is restricted, it can only be opened up again by sending it a SIGFPE, which must be done as root on the local machine.
Indicates the server machine to restrict.
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,
Constructs a server ticket using a key from the local /usr/afs/etc/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).
Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options are ignored.
The issuer must be listed in the /usr/afs/etc/UserList file on the machine named by the -server argument,
or must be logged in as the local superuser
root if the -localauth flag is included.
As noted above, this command cannot be run against servers which are already in restricted mode.
