bos_shutdown - Stops a process without changing its status flag
bos shutdown -server <machine name>
[-instance <instances>+] [-wait] [-cell <cell name>]
[-noauth] [-localauth] [-help]
bos sh -s <machine name> [-i <instances>+] [-w]
[-c <cell name>] [-n] [-l] [-h]
The bos shutdown command stops, on the server machine named by the
-server argument, either
· All of the currently running AFS server processes, except the BOS
· Only the processes specified by the -instance argument.
This command does not change a process’s status flag in the
/etc/openafs/BosConfig file, but only in the BOS Server’s memory. To
stop a process and change its BosConfig status flag, use the bos stop
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").
-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).
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.
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).
Assigns the unprivileged identity "anonymous" to the issuer. Do not
combine this flag with the -localauth flag. For more details, see
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
The following command stops all processes other than the BOS Server on
the machine "fs3.abc.com".
% bos shutdown fs3.abc.com
The following command stops the "upserver" process (server portion of
the Update Server) on the machine "fs5.abc.com".
% bos shutdown -server fs5.abc.com -instance upserver
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 flag is
