NAME

       bos_restart - Restarts a server process

SYNOPSIS

       bos restart -server <machine name> [-instance <instances>+]
           [-bosserver] [-all] [-cell <cell name>] [-noauth]
           [-localauth] [-help]

       bos res -s <machine name> [-i <instances>+] [-b]
           [-a] [-c <cell name>] [-n] [-l] [-h]

DESCRIPTION

       The bos restart command stops and immediately restarts server processes
       on the server machine named by the -server argument. Indicate which
       process or processes to restart by providing one of the following
       arguments:

       ·   The -instance argument names each AFS server process to stop and
           restart immediately, regardless of its status flag in the
           /etc/openafs/BosConfig file. Do not include bosserver in the list
           of processes; use the -bosserver flag instead.

       ·   The -bosserver flag stops all AFS server processes running on the
           machine, including the BOS Server. A new BOS Server starts
           immediately, and it starts a new instance of each process that is
           marked with the "Run" status flag in the BosConfig file.

       ·   The -all flag stops all AFS server processes running on the
           machine, except the BOS Server, and immediately restarts the
           processes that are marked with the "Run" status flag in the
           BosConfig file.

       This command does not change a process’s status flag in the BosConfig
       file.

OPTIONS

       -server <machine name>
           Indicates the server machine on which to restart each process.
           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 and then restart immediately regardless
           of its status flag setting. Use the process name assigned with the
           -instance argument to the bos create command. The output from the
           bos status command lists the names. Provide this flag or one of the
           -bosserver or -all options, but do not combine them.

       -bosserver
           Stops all AFS server processes running on the machine, including
           the BOS Server. A new BOS Server instance immediately starts, and
           starts all processes marked with the "Run" status flag in the
           BosConfig file. Provide this flag or one of the -instance or -all
           options, but do not combine them.

       -all
           Stops all AFS server processes running on the machine other than
           the BOS Server, and immediately restarts the processes marked with
           the Run status flag in the BosConfig file. Provide this flag or one
           of the -instance or -bosserver options, but do not combine them.

       -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).

       -noauth
           Assigns the unprivileged identity "anonymous" to the issuer. Do not
           combine this flag with the -localauth flag. For more details, see
           bos(8).

       -localauth
           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).

       -help
           Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options
           are ignored.

EXAMPLES

       The following command stops and restarts all processes running on the
       machine "fs3.abc.com", including the BOS Server.

          % bos restart -server fs3.abc.com -bosserver

       The following command stops and restarts all processes running on the
       machine "fs5.abc.com", excluding the BOS Server.

          % bos restart -server fs5.abc.com -all

       The following command stops and restarts the Protection Server and
       Volume Location (VL) Server processes on the machine "db3.abc.com":

          % bos restart -server db3.abc.com -instance ptserver vlserver

PRIVILEGE REQUIRED

       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
       included.
