RCSTART(1)	       DragonFly General Commands Manual	    RCSTART(1)


rcstart -- use rc.d(8) scripts conveniently


rcstart [-vnpslh] [services]


The rcstart script was written to give easier access to init scripts in the rc.d(8) folders. The parameter given to those scripts is its own name minus the 'rc' prefix. Different parameters are realized by creating links. The following aliases are available: rcstart rcstatus rcstop rcrestart Use services that have service_enable="yes" set. rconestart rconestatus rconestop rconerestart Use services that do not have service_enable="yes" set.


The following options are available: -v --verbose Be verbose after this parameter. -n --not-verbose Do not be verbose after this parameter. -p --paths Display the paths that are scanned for init scripts. -s --services Display all available services. -l --locate Following this parameter scripts will not be executed, but their location will be printed until -n or -v appear. -h --help Displays the available options. services A service is provided by an init script in an rc.d folder. The name of the service provided by an rc.d script can be identified through the PROVIDE keyword. The services parameter is treated as a regular expression by the rcstart script.


To restart all SQL servers simply run: rcrestart '.*sql' If the servers have no respective entries in /etc/make.conf, the command has to look like this: rconerestart '.*sql'


The script has been tested on FreeBSD 7.2-PRERELEASE.




The rcstart script first appeared in the bsdadminscripts-0.9 collection.
