bos_getrestart - Displays the automatic restart times for server processes


bos getrestart -server <machine name> [-cell <cell name>] [-noauth] [-localauth] [-principal <authentication principal> [-encrypt [<yes|no>]] [-verbose] [-config <configuration file>] [-help]


The bos getrestart command displays two restart times from the /etc/yfs/server/BosConfig file on the server machine named by the -server argument:

Use the bos setrestart command to set the restart times.


-server <machine name>

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

-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).


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/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.


Produces on the standard output stream a detailed trace of the command's execution. If this argument is omitted, only warnings and error messages appear.

-config <configuration file>

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


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


The output consists of two lines:

   Server <machine_name> restarts at <time>
   Server <machine_name> restarts for new binaries at <time>

Possible values for <time> include:


The following example displays the restart times for the machine

   % bos getrestart
   Server restarts at sun 4:00 am
   Server restarts for new binaries at 2:15 am

In the following example, the issuer abbreviates the machine name to fs1, relying on the cell's name server to resolve the name. The output echoes the abbreviated form.

   % bos getrestart fs1
   Server fs1 restarts at sat 5:00 am
   Server fs1 restarts for new binaries at 11:30 pm
