PTS_ADDUSER(1) AFS Command Reference PTS_ADDUSER(1)

NAME

pts_adduser - Adds a user or machine to a Protection Database group

SYNOPSIS

pts adduser -user <user name>+ -group <group name>+ [-cell <cell name>] [-noauth] [-localauth] [-force] [-help] [-auth] [-encrypt] [-config <config directory>]

pts ad -u <user name>+ -g <group name>+ [-c <cell name>] [-n] [-l] [-f] [-h] [-a] [-e] [-co <config directory>]

DESCRIPTION

The pts adduser command adds each user or machine entry named by the -user argument as a member of each group named by the -group argument.

To remove members of a group, use the pts removeuser command. To list the groups to which a user or machine belongs, or the members of a specified group, use the pts membership command.

CAUTIONS

After being added as a group member, a currently authenticated user must reauthenticate (for example, by issuing the aklog or klog.krb5 commands) to obtain permissions granted to the group on an access control list (ACL).

OPTIONS

-user <user name>+
Specifies the name of each user or machine entry to add to each group named by the -group argument. The name of a machine entry resembles an IP address and can use the wildcard notation described on the pts createuser reference page. The user or machine entry must already exist in the Protection Database.
-group <group name>+
Specifies the complete name (including the owner prefix if applicable) of each group to which to add members. The group entry must already exist in the Protection Database.
-auth
Use the calling user's tokens to communicate with the Protection Server. For more details, see pts(1).
-cell <cell name>
Names the cell in which to run the command. For more details, see pts(1).
-config <config directory>
Use an alternate config directory. For more details, see pts(1).
-encrypt
Encrypts any communication with the Protection Server. For more details, see pts(1).
-force
Enables the command to continue executing as far as possible when errors or other problems occur, rather than halting execution at the first error.
-help
Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options are ignored.
-localauth
Constructs a server ticket using a key from the local /etc/openafs/server/KeyFile file. Do not combine this flag with the -cell or -noauth options. For more details, see pts(1).
-noauth
Assigns the unprivileged identity anonymous to the issuer. For more details, see pts(1).

EXAMPLES

The following example adds user smith to the group system:administrators.

   % pts adduser -user smith -group system:administrators

The following example adds users "jones", "terry", and pat to the smith:colleagues group.

   % pts adduser -user jones terry pat -group smith:colleagues

The following example adds the machine entries in the Example Corporation subnet to the group "bin-prot". Because of the IP address range of the Example Corporation subnet, the system administrator was able to group the machines into three machine entries (using the wildcard notation discussed on the pts createuser reference page).

   % pts adduser -user 138.255.0.0 192.12.105.0 192.12.106.0 -group bin-prot

PRIVILEGE REQUIRED

The required privilege depends on the setting of the fourth privacy flag in the Protection Database entry for each group named by the -group argument (use the pts examine command to display the flags):
  • If it is the hyphen, only the group's owner and members of the system:administrators group can add members.
  • If it is lowercase "a", current members of the group can add new members.
  • If it is uppercase "A", anyone who can access the cell's database server machines can add new members.
