       "razor-admin" - Razor Registering Agent

	   razor-admin [options]  [ -register |	-create	| -discover ]

       "razor-admin" is	the Razor Agent	that performs administrative
       functions, most notably registering (-register)

       "razor-admin" must have one of the following arguments:

	   Registers a new identity, used for authenticating with Razor
	   Nomination Servers.	Identities are a user +	password pair stored
	   in "<razorhome>/identity-<user>".  The first	time "razor-admin
	   -register" exits successfully, a symlink "identity" is created to
	   point to the	active "identity-<user>" file. After that, new
	   identities can be created, but in order to use them the symlink
	   "identity" must be changed to point to them.	In general, it should
	   be called once from the command line. Exits 0 for success, exits 1
	   on failure with a human-readable output message.

	   Both	razor-report(1)	and razor-revoke(1) require user
	   authentication to work, razor-check(1) does not. This allows	the
	   Razor Nomination Server to keep track of how	many messages a	user
	   reports and revokes.	The more messages a user correctly reports
	   and/or correctly revokes, the more trust the	user earns. Likewise,
	   when	messages are incorrectly reported or revoked, the trust	goes
	   down	for that user. Highly trusted users will have the most affect
	   on the Razor	database.

	   Force discovery.  This will create "server.*.lst" files in

	   Explicitly creates "razor-agent.conf" file in <razorhome>, as well
	   as <razorhome> if it	does not exist.	 Normally loads
	   "/usr/local/etc/razor-agent.conf" if	it exists, using defaults for
	   anything not	found.	Does not attempt to register with server, but
	   will	do discovery, see "-discover".

       "razor-admin" takes following optional arguments:

	   Print a usage message and exit.

	   Print the version number and	exit.

       "-d | --verbose"
	   Print debugging information.

       "-debuglevel=n |	-dl=n"
	   Set debug level to 'n'.  Default is 3 without "-d" option, 9	with.

	   Simulate a check. Do	everything except talk to the server.

	   Specifies an	alternate configuration	file.  If not specified, it is
	   computed, see razor-agents(1) manpage for details.  See
	   razor-agent.conf(5) manpage for various configuration options.  The
	   default is "<razorhome>/razor-agent.conf".

	   Specify razorhome directory.	 This is where the configuration file,
	   logfiles, identities, and server files live.	 If not	specified, it
	   is computed,	see razor-agents(1) manpage for	details.

	   Specify file	to log to instead of what is in	the configuration
	   file.  The default is "<razorhome>/razor-agent.log".

	   Specify an identify file to use for storing a newly registered
	   identity.  If not specified,	"<razorhome>/identity-<user>" is used.

	   Use this Razor Nomination Server instead of reading

	   Request to be known as this username. Must be less than 64 chars
	   and may contain A-Z,	a-z, 0-9, as well printable chars [ex: - _ @ .
	   + / ]. If not specified, a username will be assigned. Razor users
	   are encouraged to use their email addresses as their	username.

	   Request this	password.  Valid chars are the same as for -user.  If
	   not specified, it will be assigned.

	   The identity	created	during this "razor-admin" becomes the default.
	   Normally, the first identity	file created by	"razor-admin" is the
	   default one used.

       razor-admin -d -create
	   With	no global razorhome defined (default) in
	   /usr/local/etc/razor-agents.conf, creates .razor directory in
	   user's home directory.

	   With	global razorhome defined in /usr/local/etc/razor-agents.conf,
	   will	try to use that	one, will fail if it does not have correct

       razor-admin -register
	   Registers a new identity, storing it	in <lt>razorhome<gt>.  User
	   and pass will be server generated.  An identity is required for
	   razor-report(1) and razor-revoke(1).

       razor-admin -register -user
	   Attempts to register	a new identity using the user name
	   'me\'.	 Will fail if user is already taken.

       razor-admin -d -create -home=/home/me/.razor
	   Creates .razor directory in user's home directory, which will then
	   be the default home unless specified	from cmd-line.	Sends
	   debugging information to stdout, and	does not talk to any Razor

       razor-admin -d -create -home=/usr/local/etc
	   Creates global razorhome, /usr/local/etc.  This is the magic
	   directory that will be consulted if no razorhome is specified on
	   the cmd-line	or found in user's home	directory.
