mmsinit - initialize MMS services
/usr/bin/mmsinit -t server [-o optionname=value [-o optionname2=value]...] [-P passwordfile]
The mmsinit command initializes the Media Management System (MMS) environment and enables MMS services. An MMS server runs the Media Man- agement (MM) daemon, which controls access to MMS-managed storage resources, and hosts the MMS database. Run this command once to start MMS services with the specified attributes. To change the attributes after this command has been invoked, use the mmsadm(1M) command. The mmsinit command requires the -t server argument, to specify the server on which MMS services will run. To run mmsinit, you must become superuser, or assume the Primary Administrator role.
The following options are supported: -o optionname=value... Specify one or more of the options and values listed below. log-level=emergency|alert|critical|error|warning| notice|information|debug Sets the severity level of messages to be included in the log file. Default level is error, logging all error messages. num-restarts=num Specifies the number of attempts to start a failed daemon before the drive or library associated with the daemon is disabled and requires the mmsadm online command to be run after the problem with the system or device is resolved. Use a value of -1 for unlim- ited restart attempts. The default value is 3. attended=yes|no Specify whether MMS makes operator requests when an operation cannot be automatically satisfied. An example of such a case would be if a mount request was made for a tape volume that had been physically removed from a library. The default action, yes, indicates that an operator is available to respond. num-sockets=num Specifies the number of open file descriptors the MM daemon can have at one time. On a resource-constrained system, set this value to a number between 30 and 65536. It is not recommended to set the value to less than 256. The default value is -1, which sets num- ber of file descriptors to the maximum supported. disk-timeout=seconds Specifies the time a disk archiving drive manager waits for the file system containing a disk archiving volume to become available. It is strongly recommended to set the time to a minimum of 120 seconds (two minutes). Use a value of 0 to specify no expiration time. -P passwordfile Path to a file containing the MMS administrative password. If this option is not specified, the user will be prompted for the password. A password must contain at least eight characters.
0 Successful completion. !=0 An error occurred.

When MMS is added to the Automated Cartridge System Library Software (ACSLS) environment, the ACSLS configuration must be modified to allow them to work together.
