tem or makes an existing clearinghouse available

The full name of the clearinghouse.
The create clearinghouse command creates a clearinghouse on the local
server system or makes an existing clearinghouse available. The server
start-up command usually creates a new clearinghouse when you configure
a new CDS server. Occasionally, you may need to create a second clear‐
inghouse on a particular server; for example, if you are temporarily
relocating a clearinghouse on a different server. See the OSF DCE
Administration Guide for more information about relocating a clearing‐
Clearinghouses should be named only in the root. When you enter the
command, CDS creates a read-only replica of the root directory and
stores it in the new clearinghouse as the initial replica. Because the
process that creates the new clearinghouse initiates a skulk of the
root directory, all replicas of the root should be reachable when you
enter the command.
You need write permission to the server on which you intend to create
the clearinghouse and administer permission to the cell root directory.
The server principal needs read, write, and administer permission to
the cell root directory.
This command is usually executed only by the network configuration pro‐
cedure. To ensure that all replicas of the root are reachable, perform
an immediate skulk of /.: prior to issuing this command.
This command is replaced at Revision 1.1 by the dcecp command and may
not be provided in future releases of DCE.
The following command creates a clearinghouse named /.:/Boston_CH on
the local server system: cdscp> create clearinghouse /.:/Boston_CH
