bos uninstall - Reverts to the former version of a process's binary file
<files to uninstall
+ >>> << [-dir
] >>> [-noauth
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 bythe -server
argument, which is normally the binary distribution machinefor its CPU/operating system type. It also changes the extension on thecurrent .OLD
version (if any) to .BAK
. Each binary file must residein the local /usr/afs/bin
directory unless the -dir
argument namesan alternate directory.
To start using the reverted binary immediately, issue the bos restartcommand. Otherwise, the BOS Server automatically restarts the process atthe time defined in the /usr/afs/local/BosConfig file; use the bosgetrestart command to display the time and the bos setrestart time toset 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 itshost name (either fully-qualified or abbreviated unambiguously). Fordetails, see the bos(8) manpage.
If the machine is not a binary distribution machine and is running anupclientbin process, then the files are overwritten the next time theupclientbin process fetches the corresponding file from thedistribution machine (by default within five minutes).
- -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 eachfile named by the -file argument. It is necessary only if the binariesare not in the /usr/afs/bin directory.
- -cell <cell name>
- Names the cell in which to run the command. Do not combine this argumentwith the -localauth flag. For more details, see the bos(8) manpage.
- Assigns the unprivileged identity anonymous to the issuer. Do notcombine this flag with the -localauth flag. For more details, seethe bos(8) manpage.
- Constructs a server ticket using a key from the local/usr/afs/etc/KeyFile file. The bos command interpreter presents theticket to the BOS Server during mutual authentication. Do not combine thisflag with the -cell or -noauth options. For more details, seethe bos(8) manpage.
- Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options areignored.
The following example command overwrites the /usr/afs/bin/kaserver
fileon the machine fs4.abc.com
with its .BAK
version, and the current.BAK
version by the .OLD
% bos uninstall -server fs4.abc.com -file kaserver
The issuer must be listed in the /usr/afs/etc/UserList
file on themachine named by the -server
argument, or must be logged onto a servermachine as the local superuser root
if the -localauth
