NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       dxshutdown  -  Performs  various types of automated system

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]


OPTIONS    [Toc]    [Back]

       The dxshutdown command  accepts  all  of  the  standard  X
       Toolkit  command-line options, which are documented in the
       OPTIONS section of the X(1X) reference page.

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The Shutdown Manager application, dxshutdown, provides the
       system  administrator  with a graphical user interface for
       running user-specified scripts at shutdown time  in  addition
 to performing the following types of automated system
       shutdown: Halt (and restart console mode)  Reboot  Singleuser
 mode shutdown Message-only shutdown

       Dependencies: None.  You do not need to configure anything
       prior to running Shutdown Manager.

       You must be root to run Shutdown Manager.

       Shutdown Manager also lets the system  administrator  display
  one  or  more warning messages prior to system shutdown.
 The dxshutdown command uses the Tru64 UNIX  shutdown
       command as an API, passing command-line arguments as specified
 by application defaults and user inputs.

       The Shutdown Manager also provides the following features,
       which  the shutdown command does not provide: Selection of
       a preshutdown script to be executed prior to system  shutdown
  Easy  cancellation  for  a  shutdown while the timed
       countdown is in  progress  Maintenance  of  an  error-andscript
  output  log  under  /var/adm/sysman/dxshutdown.log
       Saving and restoring user-selected shutdown  options  over
       multiple invocations of the Shutdown Manager application

       For additional information about the graphical user interface,
 see the online help volume, which is available  from
       the Help button in the main window of the Shutdown Manager

       To start dxshutdown from  the  graphical  user  interface:
       Click  on  the  Application  Manager icon on the CDE front
       panel.  Double click on the System_Admin application group
       icon.   Double  click on the Daily Admin application group
       icon.  Double click on the  Shutdown  Manager  application
