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.
-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).
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 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.
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
