       AuthLog - Traces	Authentication Server operations

       The AuthLog file	records	a trace	of Authentication Server (kaserver
       process)	operations on the local	machine	and describes any error
       conditions it encounters.

       If the AuthLog file does	not exist in the /var/openafs/logs directory
       when the	Authentication Server starts, the server process creates it
       and writes initial start-up messages to it.  If there is	an existing
       file, the Authentication	Server renames it to AuthLog.old, overwriting
       the existing AuthLog.old	file if	it exists.

       The file	is in ASCII format. Administrators listed in the
       /usr/local/etc/openafs/server/UserList file can use the bos getlog
       command to display its contents.	Alternatively, log onto	the server
       machine and use a text editor or	a file display command such as the
       UNIX cat	command. By default, the mode bits on the AuthLog file grant
       the required "r"	(read) permission to all users.

       The Authentication Server records operations only as it completes them,
       and cannot recover from failures	by reviewing the file. The log
       contents	are useful for administrative evaluation of process failures
       and other problems.

       The Authentication Server is obsolete and is provided only for sites
       that need to use	it while preparing for a migration to Kerberos KDC. It
       will be removed in a future version of OpenAFS.
