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.
