NAME

bos_status - Displays the status of server processes

SYNOPSIS

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

DESCRIPTION

The bos status command reports the status of processes on the server machine named by the -server argument, either

OPTIONS

-server <machine name>

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

-instance

Names each process for which to report status. Use the process name assigned with the -instance argument to the bos command. The output from the bos status command lists the names.

-long

Produces more detailed status information.

-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/KeyFileExt 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.

OUTPUT

The output for a process includes at least one line, which reports one of the following as the process's current status:

If one of the following special circumstances applies to the process, the indicated message appears in its entry:

The entry for the fs process always includes a second line to report the process's Auxiliary status, which is one of the following:

The entry for a cron process includes an Auxiliary status that reports when the command will next execute.

If the -long flag is used, each entry includes the following additional information:

If the -long flag is provided and the BOS Server discovers that the mode bits on files and subdirectories in the local /usr/afs directory differ from the expected values, it prints the following warning message:

   Bosserver reports inappropriate access on server directories

The following chart summarizes the expected mode bit settings. A question mark indicates that the BOS Server does not check that bit.

EXAMPLES

The following example command displays the status of processes on the machine fs3.example.com:

   % bos status fs3.example.com
   Instance buserver, currently running normally.
   Instance ptserver, currently running normally.
   Instance vlserver, currently running normally.
   Instance fs, has core file, currently running normally.
       Auxiliary status is: file server running.
   Instance upserver, currently running normally.

The following example command displays a detailed status report for the dafs and ptserver processes on the machine fs1.example.com.

   % bos status -server fs1.example.com -instance dafs ptserver -long
   Instance fs, (type is fs), currently running normally.
      Auxiliary status is: file server running.

      Last exit at Wed Jan 7 5:34:49 1998
      Last error exit at Wed Jan 7 5:34:49 1998, due to shutdown
