NAME

nsrcpd - daemon providing remote client software installation services  

SYNOPSIS

nsrcpd [ -d debug-level ]

 

DESCRIPTION

The nsrcpd daemon provides an RPC-based remote client software installation service. This service allows users to distribute and upgrade client software from a centralized software repository across a network. In addition, users can manage the centralized software repository and inventory existing NetWorker clients for currently installed software. The RPC program number provided by nsrcpd is 390437.

Normally, nsrcpd is invoked by nsrd upon receiving a request to start up the remote client software installation service and does not need to be started directly by a user.

The main thread for nsrcpd handles all RPC messages for the service. Each time a remote client installation operation begins, nsrcpd creates a new session and spawns a new thread to process that operation. The operation thread receives all data for the session from the main RPC thread and handles any user dialogs and processing for the operation. The operation thread automatically exits when a session completes. Nsrcpd automatically terminates after it has been idle for a pre-determined period.

Nsrcpd maintains a set of resources reflecting the current set of software products located in the centralized software repository, as well as the current set of products and packages installed on NetWorker clients in the datazone where it is running. These resources are managed during repository, inventory, and upgrade operations.

When nsrcpd is started with the -d <debug level> option, it runs with the requested debug level.
