NAME

       bos_start - Starts a process after setting its status flag

SYNOPSIS

       bos start -server <machine name>
           -instance <server process name>+ [-cell <cell name>]
           [-noauth] [-localauth] [-help]

       bos start -s <machine name> -i <server process name>+
           [-c <cell name>] [-n] [-l] [-h]

DESCRIPTION

       The bos start command sets the status flag for each process specified
       by the -instance argument to "Run" in the /etc/openafs/BosConfig file
       and in the BOS Server’s memory on the server machine named by the
       -server argument, then starts it. If the process is already running,
       the command’s only effect is to guarantee that the status flag is
       "Run"; it does not restart the process.

       To start a process without changing its status flag in the BosConfig
       file, use the bos startup command instead.

OPTIONS

       -server <machine name>
           Indicates the server machine on which to start 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 start. Use the process name assigned with the
           -instance argument to the bos create command. The output from the
           bos status command lists the names.

       -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 changes the status flag for the "upclientbin" and
       "upclientetc" processes to "Run" in the BosConfig file on the machine
       "fs6.abc.com" and starts them running.

          % bos start -server fs6.abc.com -instance upclientbin upclientetc

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.
