       BackupLog - Traces Backup Server	operations

       The BackupLog file records a trace of Backup Server (buserver process)
       operations on the local machine and describes any error conditions it

       If the BackupLog	file does not already exist in the /var/openafs/logs
       directory when the Backup Server	starts,	the server process creates it
       and writes initial start-up messages to it. If there is an existing
       file, the Backup	Server renames it to BackupLog.old, overwriting	the
       existing	BackupLog.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 on to the machine
       and use a text editor or	a file display command such as the UNIX	cat
       command.	By default, the	mode bits on the BackupLog file	grant the
       required	"r" (read) permission to all users.

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