KAS_HELP(8)						       AFS Command Reference						       KAS_HELP(8)

NAME
kas_help - Displays help for kas commands SYNOPSIS
kas help [-topic <help string>+] [-help] kas h [-t <help string>+] [-h] DESCRIPTION
The kas help command displays the complete online help entry (short description and syntax statement) for each command operation code specified by the -topic argument. If the -topic argument is omitted, the output includes the first line (name and short description) of the online help entry for every kas command. To list every kas command whose name or short description includes a specified keyword, use the kas apropos command. OPTIONS
-topic <help string>+ Indicates each command for which to display the complete online help entry. Omit the kas part of the command name, providing only the operation code (for example, specify setpassword, not kas setpassword). If this argument is omitted, the output briefly describes every kas command. -help Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options are ignored. OUTPUT
The online help entry for each kas command consists of the following two or three lines: o The first line names the command and briefly describes its function. o The second line lists aliases for the command, if any. o The final line, which begins with the string "Usage", lists the command's options in the prescribed order. Online help entries use the same symbols (for example, brackets) as the reference pages in this document. EXAMPLES
The following command displays the online help entry for the kas setpassword command: % kas help setpassword kas setpassword: set a user's password aliases: sp Usage: kas setpassword -name <name of user> [-new_password <new password>] [-kvno <key version number>] [-admin_username <admin principal to use for authentication>] [-password_for_admin <password>] [-cell <cell name>] [-servers <explicit list of authentication servers>+] [-help] PRIVILEGE REQUIRED

KAS_UNLOCK(8)						       AFS Command Reference						     KAS_UNLOCK(8)

NAME
kas_unlock - Unlocks a locked user account SYNOPSIS
kas unlock -name <authentication ID> [-admin_username <admin principal to use for authentication>] [-password_for_admin <admin password>] [-cell <cell name>] [-servers <explicit list of authentication servers>+] [-noauth] [-help] kas u -na <authentication ID> [-a <admin principal to use for authentication>] [-p <admin password>] [-c <cell name>] [-s <explicit list of authentication servers>+] [-no] [-h] DESCRIPTION
The kas unlock command unlocks the Authentication Database entry named by the -name argument. An entry becomes locked when the user exceeds the limit on failed authentication attempts, generally by providing the wrong password to either an AFS-modified login utility or the klog command. Use the kas setfields command to set the limit and the lockout time, and the kas examine command to examine the settings. To unlock all locked user accounts at once, shutdown the kaserver process on every database server machine, and remove the /var/lib/openafs/local/kaauxdb file from each one. The kaserver process recreates the file as it restarts. OPTIONS
-name <authentication ID> Names the Authentication Database entry to unlock. -admin_username <admin principal> Specifies the user identity under which to authenticate with the Authentication Server for execution of the command. For more details, see kas(8). -password_for_admin <admin password> Specifies the password of the command's issuer. If it is omitted (as recommended), the kas command interpreter prompts for it and does not echo it visibly. For more details, see kas(8). -cell <cell name> Names the cell in which to run the command. For more details, see kas(8). -servers <authentication servers>+ Names each machine running an Authentication Server with which to establish a connection. For more details, see kas(8). -noauth Assigns the unprivileged identity "anonymous" to the issuer. For more details, see kas(8). -help Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options are ignored. EXAMPLES
In the following example, an administrator using the "admin" account unlocks the entry for "jones": % kas unlock -name jones -admin_username admin Administrator's (admin) Password: PRIVILEGE REQUIRED
The issuer must have the "ADMIN" flag set on his or her Authentication Database entry. SEE ALSO
