NAME

amsd - AMS configuration server and/or registrar daemon

SYNOPSIS

amsd { @ | MIB_source_name } { . | @ | config_server_endpoint_spec } [ application_name authority_name registrar_unit_name]

DESCRIPTION

amsd is a background "daemon" task that functions as an AMS "configuration server" in the local continuum, as an AMS "registrar" in a specified cell, or both.
If MIB_source_name is specified, it must name a MIB initialization file in the correct format for amsd, either amsrc(5) or amsxml(5), depending on whether or not -DNOEXPAT was set at compile time. Otherwise @ is required; in this case, the built-in default MIB is loaded.
If this amsd task is NOT to run as a configuration server then the second command-line argument must be a '.' character. Otherwise the second command-line argument must be either '@' or config_server_endpoint_spec. If '@' then the endpoint specification for this configuration server is automatically computed as the default endpoint specification for the primary transport service as noted in the MIB: " hostname:2357".
If an AMS module is NOT to be run in a background thread for this daemon (enabling shutdown by amsstop(1) and/or runtime MIB update by amsmib(1)), then either the last three command-line arguments must be omitted or else the "amsd" role must not be defined in the MIB loaded for this daemon. Otherwise the application_name and authority_name arguments are required and the "amsd" role must be defined in the MIB.
If this amsd task is NOT to run as a registrar then the last command-line argument must be omitted. Otherwise the last three command-line arguments are required and they must identify a unit in an AMS venture for the indicated application and authority that is known to operate in the local continuum, as noted in the MIB. Note that the unit name for the "root unit" of a venture is the zero-length string "".

EXIT STATUS

"0"
amsd terminated without error.
-1
amsd terminated due to an anomaly as noted in the ion.log file. If this termination was not commanded, investigate and solve the problem identified in the log file and restart amsd.

FILES

If MIB source name is specified, then a file of this name must be present. Otherwise a MIB initialization file with the applicable default name (see amsrc(5)) must be present.

ENVIRONMENT

No environment variables apply.

DIAGNOSTICS

The following diagnostics may be issued to the ion.log log file:
amsd can't load MIB.
MIB initialization file was missing, unreadable, or invalid.
amsd can't start CS.
Configuration server initialization failed for reasons noted in ion.log file.
amsd can't start RS.
Registrar initialization failed for reasons noted in ion.log file.
