ReaderList - Defines readonly privileged users for the BOS Overseer Service


The ReaderList file lists the names of authenticated users authorized to issue privileged bos(8) commands that operate against the bosserver(8) installed on Auristor servers. The ReaderList file, if present, must reside in the /etc/yfs/server directory on every server machine.

This file is similar in purpose to the UserListExt(5) file, but only grants the users the permission to issue certain query operations.


Although the ReaderList file is in a human readable format, do not use a text editor to alter it. Instead always use the appropriate commands from the bos(8) command suite:


bos(8), bos_adduser(8), bos_listusers(8), bos_removeuser(8), UserListExt(5)
