After compiling the server as explained in the section called Installation on Unix Systems in Chapter 13, the executable of the NetSolve server is located in:
server [-f config_file] [-l logfile] [-k]This executable uses a configuration file for initializing the NetSolve server. When invoked with no arguments as:
UNIX> server -f /home/me/my_config
The -l option specifies the name of a file to use for logging purposes.
UNIX> server -l /home/me/agent_logfile
Multiple NetSolve servers can be running on a given machine if and only if they have a different NetSolve agent.
When the server has been compiled with the Kerberos libraries, the administrator has the option of having the server require clients to authenticate before rendering services. To mandate this authentication, the -k option must be used, otherwise no authentication will be asked for, and the server will be available to service requests to ANY client asking for services.
To terminate an existing server (or query an existing NetSolve system), the user should refer to the NetSolve management tools as outlined in Chapter 16.
