pts_listentries - Displays all users or groups managed by the Protection Service


pts listentries [-users] [-groups] [-cell <cell name>] [-noauth] [-localauth] [-force] [-help] [-auth] [-encrypt [<yes|no>]] [-config <configuration file>]


The pts listentries command displays the name and UID or GID of all Protection entries of the indicated type. It also displays the UID or GID of each entry's owner and creator.

To display all user, machine and network entries, either include the -users flag or omit both it and the -groups flag. To display all group entries, include the -groups flag. To display all entries, provide both flags.



Displays user, machine, and network entries.


Displays group entries.


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 <configuration file>

Sets the location of the configuration file to be used. The default file is /etc/yfs/yfs-client.conf. For more details, see pts(1).

-encrypt [<yes|no>]

Enables or disables encryption for any communication with the Protection Server. For more details, see pts(1).


Enables the command to continue executing as far as possible when errors or other problems occur, rather than halting execution at the first error.


Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options are ignored.


Constructs a server ticket using a key from the local /etc/yfs/server/KeyFileExt file. Do not combine this flag with the -cell or -noauth options. For more details, see pts(1).


Assigns the unprivileged identity anonymous to the issuer. For more details, see pts(1).


The output includes a line for each entry, with information in four columns that have the following headers:


The entry's name.


The entry's Auristor User Number (AUN) or Auristor Group Number (AGN).


The UID of the user or machine, or GID of the group that owns the entry.


The AUN of the user who created the entry.

The system:administrators group is listed as the creator of the anonymous entry and the predefined system groups, but it is not otherwise possible for a group to create Protection entries.

In general, the entries appear in the order in which they were created.


The following example displays both user and group entries.

   % pts listentries -users -groups
   Name                          ID  Owner Creator
   system:administrators       -204   -204    -204
   system:anyuser              -101   -204    -204
   system:authuser             -102   -204    -204
   anonymous                  32766   -204    -204
   admin                          1   -204   32766
   pat                          100   -204       1
   smith                        101   -204       1
   pat:friends                 -206    100     100
   staff                       -207   -204       1


The issuer must belong to the system:administrators group.
