This section describes publicly accessible DCE administration commands
that are general to DCE rather than specific to a particular component.
These commands are as follows: The csrc utility is the code set reg‐
istry compiler, which builds a DCE character and code set registry on a
host from a source file supplied by a cell administrator. Administra‐
tors run the csrc utility when they are building an "internationalized"
DCE cell. The dce_config shell command invokes a menu-driven interface
that installs, configures, and starts up DCE. The dce_config command
displays a hierarchy of menus and invokes individual installation and
configuration routines, according to users' menu selections. The dcecp
control program is the primary DCE administration interface, providing
remote access to routine DCE administrative functions. The DCE host
daemon is a process that provides services for the local host, and is
also the server used by remote applications to access these host ser‐
vices. Returns the name of the local cell. Returns the IP address for
a given machine name.
See each command's reference page for further information.
