dtsd(1m)dtsd(1m)NAMEdtsd - Restarts the DTS daemon
SYNOPSISdtsd [options] [-d] [-w serviceability]
dtsd [-s [-k courier|noncourier] [-g] [-o]]
Debug mode. The command will run in the foreground. See svcroute(5)
for the full description of the appropriate format for this entry.
Only the three-field format, severity:how:where, is used. An example
is: FATAL:TEXTFILE:/dev/console Run as a server. Default is backup,
courier, local server Run dtsd as a global server. Run dtsd as a
courier. Run dtsd as a noncourier. When enabling as a server, set the
clock immediately. Equivalent to the command enable set clock true in
dtscp or to the command dcecp dts activate -abruptly. Run dtsd as a
The dtsd command invokes the DTS daemon (clerk or server process). This
command is usually executed as part of the overall DCE startup script,
You can enter the command manually under the following conditions: If a
DTS daemon fails to start automatically upon reboot If you want to
restart a daemon that you shut down to perform a backup or do diagnos‐
In normal rebooting, the rc.dce script automatically provides arguments
appropriate to the choice of configuration options.
The command line arguments shown here can also be provided to dced as
part of the fixed configuration strings, if dced is configured to auto‐
matically start the dtsd.
If dtsd is started with no arguments (other than -d and -w), then the
server must be started with dcecp. The following example configures a
local server: dcecp> dts configure -notglobal dcecp> dts activate
DTS runs as the host machine principal, which is usually root. See the
Security reference pages for information about principals.
Use dtsd interactively only when troubleshooting; use the rc.dce script
to start the DTS daemon. On some systsems the superuser is associated
with the machine principal.
To restart the daemon, follow these steps: Log in to the system as
superuser (root). Use the ps command to make sure that dced and cdsadv
are running. (The DCE daemon provides the endpoint mapping and secu‐
rity services, and cdsadv provides CDS.) Enter the following command
to restart the dts daemon as a clerk: $ dtsd-c
To restart the dts daemon as a server, use dtsd-s and to restart it as
a global server, setting the clock on startup, use dtsd-s -g -o
Commands: dtscp (1m), dtsdate (1m), dcecp (1m).
