The bos getrestart command displays two restart times from the
/etc/openafs/BosConfig file on the server machine named by the
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.
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
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:
"never", indicating that the BOS Server never performs that type of
"now", indicating that the BOS Server performs that type of restart only
each time it restarts.
A specified day and time, indicating that the BOS Server performs that
type of restart once per week. Example: "sun 4:00 am".
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
% 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
