|keactrl [command] [-c keactrl-config-file] [-s server[,server,...]]|
keactrl is a shell script which controls the startup, shutdown and reconfiguration of the Kea servers (kea-dhcp4, kea-dhcp6 and kea-dhcp-ddns). It also provides the means for checking the current status of the servers and determining the configuration files in use.
Depending on requirements, not all of the available servers need be run. The keactrl configuration file sets which servers are enabled and which are disabled. By default the configuration file is [kea-install-dir]/etc/kea/keactrl.conf.
See the Kea Administrators Guide for the documentation of the parameters in the keactrl configuration file.
commandCommand to be issued to the servers. It can be one of the following:
startStart the servers.
stopStop the servers.
reloadInstructs the servers to re-read the kea configuration file.
statusPrint the status of the servers.
-c|--ctrl-config keactrl-config-fileSpecify the keactrl configuration file. Without this switch, the keactrl will attempt to use the file [kea-install-dir]/etc/kea/keactrl.conf.
-s|--server server[,server,...]Specifies a subset of the enabled servers to which the command should be issued. The list of servers should be separated by commas with no intervening spaces. Acceptable values are:
