       bos_setrestricted - place a server in restricted mode

       bos setrestricted -server <machine name> -mode 1
	   [-cell <cell name>] [-noauth] [-localauth] [-help]

       The bos setrestricted command places the server in restricted mode.
       This mode increases the security of the bos server by removing access
       to a number of bos commands that are only used whilst configuring a

       When a server is in restricted mode, access to bos_exec, bos uninstall,
       bos install, bos create, bos delete, bos prune is denied, and the use
       of bos getlog is limited.

       Once a server has been placed in restricted mode, it may not be opened
       up again using a remote command. That is, bos setrestricted has no
       method of setting an unrestricted mode. Once a server is restricted, it
       can only be opened up again by sending it a SIGFPE, which must be done
       as root on the local machine.

       -server <machine name>
	   Indicates the server machine to restrict.

       -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 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.

       As noted above, this command cannot be run against servers which are
       already in restricted mode.
