bos_start - Starts a process after setting its status flag
bos start -server
<server process name
< cell name
bos start -s
< server process name
The bos start
command sets the status flag for each process specified by
argument to "Run" in the
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
- -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
- -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
- Assigns the unprivileged identity "anonymous" to
the issuer. Do not combine this flag with the -localauth flag. For
more details, see bos(8).
- Constructs a server ticket using a key from the 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).
- Prints the online help for this command. All other valid
options are ignored.
The following command changes the status flag for the "upclientbin"
and "upclientetc" processes to "Run" in the
file on the machine "fs6.abc.com" and starts them
% bos start -server fs6.abc.com -instance upclientbin upclientetc
The issuer must be listed in the /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
