NAME

bos_shutdown - Stops a process without changing its status flag

SYNOPSIS

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

DESCRIPTION

The bos shutdown command stops, on the server machine named by the -server argument, either

This command does not change a process's status flag in the /etc/yfs/server/BosConfig file, but only in the BOS Server's memory. To stop a process and change its BosConfig status flag, use the bos stop command instead.

Once stopped with this command, a process does not run again until an administrator starts it by using the bos start, bos startup, or bos restart command, or until the BOS Server restarts (assuming that the process's BosConfig status flag is Run).

OPTIONS

-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 bos(8).

-instance <instances>+

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. Omit this argument to stop all processes other than the BOS Server.

-wait

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 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 all processes other than the BOS Server on the machine fs3.example.com.

   % bos shutdown fs3.example.com

The following command stops the upserver process (server portion of the Update Server) on the machine fs5.example.com.

   % bos shutdown -server fs5.example.com -instance upserver

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.
