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) or 2 (A_SHUTDOWN), to pass a single string of boot arguments to the uadmin system call. 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").
