       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 omniorb-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 minutes.


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