|o||All of the currently running AFS server processes, except the BOS Server.|
|o||Only the processes specified by the -instance argument.|
Once stopped with this command, a process does not run again until an administrator starts it by using the bos start, bos startup, or bos restart command, or until the BOS Server restarts (assuming that the processs BosConfig status flag is Run).
-server <machine name> Indicates the server machine on which to stop processes. Identify the machine by IP address or its host name (either fully-qualified or abbreviated unambiguously). For details, see bos(8). -instance <instances>+ Names each process to stop. Use the process name assigned with the -instance argument to the bos create command. The output from the bos status command lists the names. Omit this argument to stop all processes other than the BOS Server. -wait Delays the return of the command shell prompt until all processes actually stop. If this argument is omitted, the prompt returns almost immediately even if all processes are not stopped. -cell <cell name> Names the cell in which to run the command. Do not combine this argument with the -localauth flag. For more details, see bos(8). -noauth Assigns the unprivileged identity anonymous to the issuer. Do not combine this flag with the -localauth flag. For more details, see bos(8). -localauth Constructs a server ticket using a key from the local /usr/local/etc/openafs/server/KeyFile file. The bos command interpreter presents the ticket to the BOS Server during mutual authentication. Do not combine this flag with the -cell or -noauth options. For more details, see bos(8). -help Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options are ignored.
The following command stops all processes other than the BOS Server on the machine fs3.abc.com.
% bos shutdown fs3.abc.com
The following command stops the upserver process (server portion of the Update Server) on the machine fs5.abc.com.
% bos shutdown -server fs5.abc.com -instance upserver
The issuer must be listed in the /usr/local/etc/openafs/server/UserList file on the machine named by the -server argument, or must be logged onto a server machine as the local superuser root if the -localauth flag is included.
