           upserver [<directory>+] [-crypt <directory>+]
               [-clear <directory>+] [-auth <directory>+] [-help]


           The upserver command initializes the server portion of the Update
           Server (the "upserver" process). In the conventional configuration, its
           binary file is located in the /usr/lib/openafs directory on a file
           server machine.
           The upserver command is not normally issued at the command shell prompt
           but rather placed into a file server machine's /etc/openafs/BosConfig
           file with the bos create command. If it is ever issued at the command
           shell prompt, the issuer must be logged onto a database server machine
           as the local superuser "root".
           The upserver command specifies which of the directories on the local
           disk are eligible for distribution in response to requests from the
           client portion of the Update Server (the upclient process) running on
           other machines. If no directories are specified, the upserver process
           distributes the contents of any directory on its local disk.
           The upserver process can distribute a directory's contents in encrypted
           or unencrypted form. By default, it does not use encryption unless an
           upclient process requests it (this default is equivalent to setting the
           -clear flag). When the -crypt flag is provided, the upserver process
           only fulfills requests for encrypted transfer.
           The upclient and upserver processes always mutually authenticate,
           whether or not the data they pass is encrypted; they use the key with
           the highest key version number in the /etc/openafs/server/KeyFile file
           to construct a server ticket for mutual authentication.
           This command does not use the syntax conventions of the AFS command
           suites. Provide the command name and all option names in full.


           Do not use the Update Server to distribute the contents of the
           /etc/openafs/server directory without the -crypt flag.  The contents of
           this directory are sensitive.


               Names each directory to distribute in unencrypted form (because
               they appear before the first -crypt or -clear flag on the command
               line). If this argument is omitted, all directories on the
               machine's local disk are eligible for distribution.
           -crypt <directory>+
               Precedes a list of one or more directories that the upserver
               process distributes only in encrypted form.
               this level.
               Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options
               are ignored.


           The following example bos create command defines and starts an upserver
           process on the host machine "". The last parameter (enclosed
           in quotes) instructs the upserver process to distribute the contents of
           the /usr/lib/openafs directory in unencrypted form and the contents of
           the /etc/openafs/server directory in encrypted form.
              % bos create  -server -instance upserver -type simple \
                  -cmd "/usr/lib/openafs/upserver /usr/lib/openafs -crypt /etc/openafs/server"


           The issuer must be logged in as the superuser "root" on a file server
           machine to issue the command at a command shell prompt. It is
           conventional instead to create and start the process by issuing the bos
           create command.
