BOS_GETRESTART(8) AFS Command Reference BOS_GETRESTART(8)
bos_getrestart - Displays the automatic restart times for server processes
bos getrestart -server <machine name> [-cell <cell name>]
[-noauth] [-localauth] [-help]
bos getr -s <machine name> [-c <cell name>] [-n]
The bos getrestart command displays two restart times from the /etc/openafs/BosConfig file on the server machine named by the -server
o The general restart time at which the BOS Server process automatically restarts itself and all processes marked with status "Run" in
the BosConfig file. The default is Sunday at 4:00 a.m.
o The binary restart time at which the BOS Server automatically restarts any process for which the time stamp on the binary file in the
/usr/lib/openafs directory is later than the last restart time for the process. The default is 5:00 a.m. Use the bos getdate command to
list a binary file's timestamp, and the -long flag to the bos status command to display a process's most recent restart time.
Use the bos setrestart command to set the restart times.
-server <machine name>
Indicates the server machine for which to display the restart times. Identify the machine by IP address or its host name (either fully-
qualified or abbreviated unambiguously). For details, see bos(8).
-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
Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options are ignored.
The output consists of two lines:
Server <machine_name> restarts at <time>
Server <machine_name> restarts for new binaries at <time>
Possible values for <time> include:
o "never", indicating that the BOS Server never performs that type of restart.
o "now", indicating that the BOS Server performs that type of restart only each time it restarts.
o A specified day and time, indicating that the BOS Server performs that type of restart once per week. Example: "sun 4:00 am".
o A specified time, indicating that the BOS Server performs that type of restart once per day. Examples: "11:00 pm", "3:00 am".
The following example displays the restart times for the machine "db2.abc.com":
% bos getrestart db2.abc.com
Server db2.abc.com restarts at sun 4:00 am
Server db2.abc.com restarts for new binaries at 2:15 am
In the following example, the issuer abbreviates the machine name "fs1.abc.com" to "fs1", relying on the cell's name server to resolve the
name. The output echoes the abbreviated form.
% bos getrestart fs1
Server fs1 restarts at sat 5:00 am
Server fs1 restarts for new binaries at 11:30 pm
