bos_stop - Stops a process after changing its status flag
bos stop -server <machine name>
-instance <server process name>+ [-wait]
[-cell <cell name>] [-noauth] [-localauth] [-help]
bos sto -s <machine name> -i <server process name>+
[-w] [-c <cell name>] [-n] [-l] [-h]
The bos stop command sets the status flag for each process specified
with the -instance argument to "NotRun" in the /etc/openafs/BosConfig
file on the server machine named by the -server argument, then stops
To stop a process without changing its BosConfig status flag, use the
bos shutdown command instead.
-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 <server process name>+
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.
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 example command stops the upserver and runntp processes
on the machine "fs7.abc.com".
% bos stop -server fs7.abc.com -instance upserver runntp
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
