NAME

bos_restart - Restarts a server process

SYNOPSIS

bos restart -server <machine name> [-instance <instances>+] [-bosserver] [-all] [-cell <cell name>] [-noauth] [-localauth] [-principal <authentication principal> [-encrypt [<yes|no>]] [-config <configuration file>] [-help]

DESCRIPTION

The bos restart command stops and immediately restarts server processes on the server machine named by the -server argument. Indicate which process or processes to restart by providing one of the following arguments:

This command does not change a process's status flag in the BosConfig file.

OPTIONS

-server <machine name>

Indicates the server machine on which to restart each process. Identify the machine by IP address or its host name (either fully-qualified or abbreviated unambiguously). For details, see bos(8).

-instance <instances>+

Names each process to stop and then restart immediately regardless of its status flag setting. Use the process name assigned with the -instance argument to the bos create command. The output from the bos status command lists the names. Provide this flag or one of the -bosserver or -all options, but do not combine them.

-bosserver

Stops all AFS server processes running on the machine, including the BOS Server. A new BOS Server instance immediately starts, and starts all processes marked with the Run status flag in the BosConfig file. Provide this flag or one of the -instance or -all options, but do not combine them.

-all

Stops all AFS server processes running on the machine other than the BOS Server, and immediately restarts the processes marked with the Run status flag in the BosConfig file. Provide this flag or one of the -instance or -bosserver options, but do not combine them.

-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 /etc/yfs/server/KeyFileEx 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).

-principal <authentication principal>

Indicates the principal to be used for authentication. This option can be useful when several credentials caches are available for different principals.

-encrypt [<yes|no>]

Enables or disables encryption for the command so that the operation's results are not transmitted across the network in clear text.

-config <configuration file>

Sets the location of the configuration file to be used. The default file is /etc/yfs/yfs-client.conf.

-help

Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options are ignored.

EXAMPLES

The following command stops and restarts all processes running on the machine fs3.example.com, including the BOS Server.

   % bos restart -server fs3.example.com -bosserver

The following command stops and restarts all processes running on the machine fs5.example.com, excluding the BOS Server.

   % bos restart -server fs5.example.com -all

The following command stops and restarts the Protection Server and Volume Location (VL) Server processes on the machine db3.example.com:

   % bos restart -server db3.example.com -instance ptserver vlserver

PRIVILEGE REQUIRED

The issuer must be listed in the /etc/yfs/server/UserListExt file on the machine named by the -server argument, or must be logged onto a server with an account capable of reading the /etc/yfs/server/KeyFileExt file if the -localauth flag is included.
