Using nsr_shutdown to stop a NetWorker server

The nsr_shutdown command identifies and kills the NetWorker daemons on a Legato NetWorker server. Use the command whenever you need to install or remove Legato NetWorker software. You must become root on the system to use the nsr_shutdown command.

The following example describes the format and command options available for

# nsr_shutdown [ -a ] [ -A ] [ -d ] [ -n ] [ -q ] [ -s ] [ -v ]
  • Use the -a option to kill all of the Backup daemons. The option has the same effect as the -A, -d, and -s options combined.
  • Use the -A option to kill any nsralist processes.
  • Use the -d option to kill the NetWorker server daemons. If you do not specify any options, the -d option is assumed by default.
  • Use the -n option to echo the kill command without a real shutdown.
  • Use the -q option to perform a quiet shutdown, without prompts for confirmation.
  • Use the -s option to kill any savegrp and nsrexecd processes.
  • Use the -v option to echo commands and their arguments as nsr_shutdown executes them.
