na_cifs_terminate - terminate CIFS service
cifs terminate [ -t minutes ] [ workstation | IP_address ]
The cifs terminate command is used to terminate CIFS service.
If the workstation operand is specified, then all
CIFS sessions open by that workstation will be terminated.
It is also possible to terminate a session using the
client IP_address. If workstation or IP_address is not
specified, then all CIFS sessions will be terminated and
CIFS service will be shut down completely. To restart
CIFS service after it has been shut down, use the cifs
restart command (see na_cifs_restart(1)).
If CIFS service is terminated for a workstation that has a
file open, then that workstation will not be able to save
any changes that it may have cached for that file, which
could result in the loss of data. Therefore, it is very
important to warn users before terminating CIFS service.
The -t option, described below, can be used to warn users
before terminating CIFS service.
If you run cifs terminate without the -t option and the
affected workstations have open files, then you'll be
prompted to enter the number of minutes that you'd like to
delay before terminating. If you execute cifs terminate
from rsh(1) you will be required to supply the -t option
since commands executed with rsh(1) are unable to prompt
for user input.
na_cifs_restart(1), na_halt(1), na_reboot(1), rsh(1).
- -t minutes
- Specifies the number of minutes to delay
before terminating CIFS service. During
the delay the system will periodically
send notices of the impending shutdown to
the affected workstations. (Note: workstations
running Windows95/98 or Windows
for Workgroups won't see the notification
unless they're running WinPopup.) If the
specified number of minutes is zero, then
CIFS service will be terminated immediately.
