uadmin


NAME
     uadmin - administrative control

SYNOPSIS
     /usr/sbin/uadmin cmd fcn [mdep]


     /sbin/uadmin cmd fcn [mdep]


DESCRIPTION
     The uadmin command provides control for basic administrative
     functions.  This  command  is  tightly coupled to the system
     administration procedures and is not  intended  for  general
     use. It may be invoked only by the super-user.


     Both the cmd (command) and fcn (function) arguments are con-
     verted to integers and passed to the uadmin system call. The
     optional mdep (machine dependent) argument is only available
     for  the  cmd  values  of 1 (A_REBOOT), 2 (A_SHUTDOWN), or 5
     (A_DUMP). For any other  cmd  value,  no  mdep  command-line
     argument is allowed.


     When passing an mdep value that  contains  whitespaces,  the
     string  must  be  grouped  together  as  a  single  argument
     enclosed within quotes, for example:

       uadmin 1 1 "-s kernel/unix"

WARNINGS
     Shutting down or halting the system by means of uadmin  does
     not   update the  boot  archive.  Avoid  using  this command
     after

         o    editing of files such as /etc/system

         o    installing new driver binaries or kernel binaries

         o    updating  existing  driver   binaries   or   kernel
              binaries.


     Use reboot(1M) or halt(1M) instead.
