MODULE

base


SYNOPSIS

boot [ --help ] [ -db connectstring ] <item>...


DESCRIPTION

This script boots one or more nodes to bring them from the powered on (READY) state to a running operating system (RUNNING). Only node type devices will be booted.


OPTIONS

--db <connectstring> Database type and connection information. For GDBM, "GDBM:" followed by the filename of the cluster database to use. For LDAP, the syntax is "LDAP:host:port:dbname"

--help Print extended usage information

--man Print this manpage.


NOTES

boot will accept multiple devices or collection on the command line.

When booting collections, leaders in that collection are not booted, since that would require waiting for the leader to boot before booting the children.


FILES

The default paths for location of the cluster configuration database, cloned directories, supporting libraries, and other settings are recorded in the CConf.pm config file. Set the environment variable CLUSTER_CONFIG to the location of CConf.pm, or use the default of /cluster/config
