       omniNames - OmniORB Interoperable Naming Service


       omniNames [options] [omniORB-options]


       This manual page documents briefly the omniNames command.

       omniNames  is  omniORBs  Interoperable  Naming  Service  for  CORBA, an
       implementation of the OMG’s COS Naming Service Specification.  To  make
       it  easy  to  use  omniNames  with  corbaname  URIs, it starts with the
       default port of 2809 and an object key  of  NameService  for  the  root
       naming context.

       When  started  for the first time omniNames needs to be told which port
       it should listen  on.   This  is  specified  with  the  -start  option.
       Subsequentley  omniNames  will  always  determine its port from the log
       file which it writes.

       When omniNames starts up successfully it writes the stringified  object
       reference for its root context on standard error.


       A  summary  of  options is included below.  For a complete description,
       see the HTML pages included in the omniorb4-doc package.

       -start [port]
              This needs to be used the first time omniNames is run.  With  no
              port argument the standard default of 2809 is used.

       -logdir directory_name
              This  specifies the directory where the log/data files are kept.
              By default /var/lib/omniorb-nameserver/ is used.

       -errlog file_name
              Where to redirect standard error output.

              Ignore the port specification.


              Alternate way to specify the directory where the log/data  files
              are kept.

              Idle  time  between  checkpoints  in seconds.  It defaults to 15


       The programs are documented fully by  the  HTML  documentation  in  the
       omniorb4-doc package.
