BOS_SETCELLNAME(8)	     AFS Command Reference	    BOS_SETCELLNAME(8)

       bos_setcellname - Sets the cell's name in ThisCell and CellServDB

       bos setcellname -server <machine name> -name <cell name>
	   [-cell <cell name>] [-noauth] [-localauth] [-help]

       bos setc -s <machine name> -n <cell name>
	   [-c <cell name>] [-n] [-l] [-h]

       The bos setcellname command establishes the cell's name and makes the
       server machine named by the -server argument a member of it, by
       recording the value of the -name argument in two files which it creates
       on the local disk:

       ·   /usr/afs/etc/ThisCell

       ·   /usr/afs/etc/CellServDB. The cell name appears on the first line in
	   the file, preceded by the required ">" symbol.  The machine name
	   specified with the -server argument appears on the second line
	   along with its IP address as obtained from the cell's naming
	   service. The machine is thus designated as the cell's first
	   database server machine.

       Issue this command only when the installing the cell's first AFS server
       machine. The OpenAFS Quick Start Guide explains how to copy over the
       ThisCell and CellServDB files from this or another appropriate machine
       during installation of additional server machines.

       Be sure to choose a satisfactory cell name when issuing this command,
       because changing a cell's name is very complicated; for one thing, it
       requires changing every password in the Authentication Database.
       Consult the OpenAFS Administration Guide for advice on choosing a cell

       -server <machine name>
	   Indicates the server machine on which to set the cell name in the
	   ThisCell and CellServDB file. It is always the first machine
	   installed in a cell. Identify the machine by IP address or its host
	   name (either fully-qualified or abbreviated unambiguously).	For
	   details, see bos(8).

       -name <cell name>
	   Defines the cell name, using standard Internet domain name format
	   (the actual domain name is usually appropriate). Examples are
	   "" for the ABC Corporation and "" for the State
	   University. It must match the value of the -cell argument, if that
	   is provided.

       -cell <cell name>
	   Names the cell in which to run the command. Do not combine this
	   argument with the -localauth flag. For more details, see bos(8).

	   Assigns the unprivileged identity "anonymous" to the issuer. Do not
	   combine this flag with the -localauth flag. For more details, see

	   Constructs a server ticket using a key from the local
	   /usr/afs/etc/KeyFile file. The bos command interpreter presents the
	   ticket to the BOS Server during mutual authentication. Do not
	   combine this flag with the -cell or -noauth options. For more
	   details, see bos(8).

	   Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options
	   are ignored.

       The following command defines the cell name "" in the ThisCell
       and CellServDB files on the machine "" as it is installed as
       the cell's first server machine.

	  % bos setcellname -server -name

       Authorization checking is normally turned off during installation,
       which is the only recommended time to use this command; in this case no
       privilege is required. If authorization checking is turned on, the
       issuer must be listed in the /usr/afs/etc/UserList file on the machine
       named by the -server argument, or must be logged in as the local
       superuser "root" if the -localauth flag is included.
