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/afs/etc directory on every server machine.

       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:

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

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

       ·   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/afs/etc 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.
