       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
       command instead.

       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).

       -instance <instances>+
           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
           are ignored.


       The following command stops all processes other than the BOS Server on
       the machine "".

          % bos shutdown

       The following command stops the "upserver" process (server portion of
       the Update Server) on the machine "".

          % bos shutdown -server -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

       bos_restart(8), bos_start(8), bos_startup(8), bos_status(8)
