bos_stop - Stops a process after changing its status flag
bos stop -server
<server process name
] [ -help
bos sto -s
< server process name
The bos stop
command sets the status flag for each process specified with
argument to "NotRun" in the
file on the server machine named by the
argument, then stops it.
To stop a process without changing its BosConfig
status flag, use the
- -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
- -instance <server process name>+
- 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.
- 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
- 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 example command stops the upserver
processes on the machine "fs7.abc.com".
% bos stop -server fs7.abc.com -instance upserver runntp
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
