NAME
pts_interactive - Enters interactive mode SYNOPSIS
pts interactive [-cell] <cell name> [-noauth] [-auth] [-localauth] [-force] pts in [-c] <cell name> [-n] [-f] DESCRIPTION
The pts interactive command allows the user to enter an interactive mode, useful for running bulk commands like creating new users or groups. pts interactive uses the authentication state supplied on its command line to run all bulk commands. However, if a bulk command is supplied with authentication options such as -cell, -localauth, -auth or -noauth then it, and all subsequent bulk commands, will be run with those options. CAUTIONS
Prior to OpenAFS 1.4.5 and OpenAFS 1.5.23, the pts interactive command was only available on Unix or Linux and when OpenAFS was compiled with the supergroups option (disabled by default). As of OpenAFS 1.4.5 and 1.5.23, it is always available. Running bulk pts commands may degrade the performance of the Protection Server while they are run and server resources may not be released immediately after commands are run. The pts sleep command can be used in interactive mode or with pts source to give the Protection Server a change to catch up. OPTIONS
pts interactive only takes the standard pts options. -cell <cell name> Names the cell in which to run the command. For more details, see pts(1). -force Enables the command to continue executing as far as possible when errors or other problems occur, rather than halting execution at the first error. -help Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options are ignored. -localauth Constructs a server ticket using a key from the local /etc/openafs/server/KeyFile file. Do not combine this flag with the -cell or -noauth options. For more details, see pts(1). -noauth Assigns the unprivileged identity anonymous to the issuer. For more details, see pts(1). OUTPUT
The output is the same as if each individual command were run from the command line. EXAMPLES
Here is an example of a pts interactive session: % pts interactive pts> examine admin Name: admin, id: 1, owner: system:administrators, creator: anonymous, membership: 2, flags: S----, group quota: 20. pts> help pts: Commands are: adduser add a user to a group apropos search by help text chown change ownership of a group creategroup create a new group createuser create a new user delete delete a user or group from database examine examine an entry help get help on commands interactive enter interactive mode listentries list users/groups in the protection database listmax list max id listowned list groups owned by an entry or zero id gets orphaned groups membership list membership of a user or group quit exit program removeuser remove a user from a group rename rename user or group setfields set fields for an entry setmax set max id sleep pause for a bit source read commands from file pts> quit % PRIVILEGE REQUIRED
The same privilege is required to run the command in interactive mode as is required to run the command by itself on the command line. Some commands such as pts createuser require that the user belong to the system:administrators group, while others do not. SEE ALSO

NAME
       pts_interactive - Enters interactive mode

SYNOPSIS
       pts interactive [-cell] <cell name> [-noauth]
	   [-auth] [-localauth] [-force]

       pts in [-c] <cell name> [-n] [-f]

DESCRIPTION
       The pts interactive command allows the user to enter an interactive mode, useful for running bulk commands like creating new users or
       groups.

       pts interactive uses the authentication state supplied on its command line to run all bulk commands. However, if a bulk command is supplied
       with authentication options such as -cell, -localauth, -auth or -noauth then it, and all subsequent bulk commands, will be run with those
       options.

CAUTIONS
       Prior to OpenAFS 1.4.5 and OpenAFS 1.5.23, the pts interactive command was only available on Unix or Linux and when OpenAFS was compiled
       with the supergroups option (disabled by default).  As of OpenAFS 1.4.5 and 1.5.23, it is always available.

       Running bulk pts commands may degrade the performance of the Protection Server while they are run and server resources may not be released
       immediately after commands are run. The pts sleep command can be used in interactive mode or with pts source to give the Protection Server
       a change to catch up.

OPTIONS
       pts interactive only takes the standard pts options.

       -cell <cell name>
	   Names the cell in which to run the command. For more details, see pts(1).

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

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

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

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

OUTPUT
       The output is the same as if each individual command were run from the command line.

EXAMPLES
       Here is an example of a pts interactive session:

	  % pts interactive
	  pts> examine admin
	  Name: admin, id: 1, owner: system:administrators, creator: anonymous,
	    membership: 2, flags: S----, group quota: 20.
