NAME

bos_start - Starts a process after setting its status flag

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

bos start -server <machine name>
-instance <server process name>+ [-cell <cell name>]
[-noauth] [-localauth] [-help]

bos start -s <machine name> -i <server process name>+
[-c <cell name>] [-n] [-l] [-h]

DESCRIPTION

The bos start command sets the status flag for each process specified by the -instance argument to Run in the /usr/local/etc/openafs/BosConfig file and in the BOS Server’s memory on the server machine named by the -server argument, then starts it. If the process is already running, the command’s only effect is to guarantee that the status flag is Run; it does not restart the process.

To start a process without changing its status flag in the BosConfig file, use the bos startup command instead.

OPTIONS

-server <machine name> Indicates the server machine on which to start processes. Identify the machine by IP address or its host name (either fully-qualified or abbreviated unambiguously). For details, see bos(8).
-instance <server process name>+ Names each process to start. Use the process name assigned with the -instance argument to the bos create command. The output from the bos status command lists the names.
-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.

EXAMPLES

The following command changes the status flag for the upclientbin and upclientetc processes to Run in the BosConfig file on the machine fs6.abc.com and starts them running.



   % bos start -server fs6.abc.com -instance upclientbin upclientetc



PRIVILEGE REQUIRED

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.
