USERLIST(5)		      AFS File Reference		   USERLIST(5)

       UserList	- Defines privileged administrators

       The UserList file lists the AFS usernames of the	system administrators
       authorized to issue privileged bos, vos,	and backup commands that
       affect the local	server machine or the volumes housed on	it. It must
       reside in the /usr/local/etc/openafs/server directory on	every server

       Although	the UserList file is in	ASCII format, do not use a text	editor
       to alter	it. Instead always use the appropriate commands	from the bos
       command suite:

       o   The bos adduser command to add a user to the	file.

       o   The bos listusers command to	display	the contents of	the file.

       o   The bos removeuser command to remove	a user from the	file.

       Although	it is theoretically possible to	list different administrators
       in the UserList files on	different server machines, doing so can	cause
       unanticipated authorization failures and	is not recommended. In cells
       that use	the Update Server to distribute	the contents of	the
       /usr/local/etc/openafs/server directory,	it is customary	to edit	only
       the copy	of the file stored on the system control machine. Otherwise,
       edit the	file on	each server machine individually.
