           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:
           ?   /etc/openafs/server/ThisCell
           ?   /etc/openafs/server/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).
               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 /etc/openafs/server/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.
