Shut down PMDF components.
pmdf shutdown [component]
Command Qualifiers Defaults None. None.
On UNIX, must have superuser privileges in order to use this utility.
componentOptional parameter which specifies a specific PMDF component to be shut down. On UNIX, the components that may be specified are
pop_server(the PMDF MessageStore POP server),
pop3(the system mailbox POP server),
imap(the system mailbox IMAP server),
imap_server(the PMDF MessageStore IMAP server),
x400, or indeed any specific Dispatcher service by name (as defined in the Dispatcher configuration file) such as PMDF-XGS, or PMDF-LAN Lotus Notes, or PMDF-DIRSYNC Lotus Notes servers. On NT, the components that may be specified are
circuit_check. Note that shutting down the PMDF Service Dispatcher, i.e., the
dispatchercomponent, shuts down all the service components it handles, which may include
poppassd, and any other Dispatcher services such as PMDF-XGS, PMDF-LAN Lotus Notes, and PMDF-DIRSYNC Lotus Notes servers. If no component name is given then all active components will be shutdown.
pmdf shutdownutility shuts down the PMDF Job Controller and the PMDF Service Dispatcher. Note that shutting down the PMDF Service Dispatcher shuts down all services (e.g., SMTP, POP3, POPPASSD, IMAP, HTTP, PMDF-XGS, PMDF-LAN Lotus Notes, and PMDF-DIRSYNC Lotus Notes servers) being handled by the Service Dispatcher.
Note that on NT, an alternate way of shutting down the Dispatcher and Job Controller is to go to the Services icon under the Control Panel, and then stop them.
pmdf shutdown forcecan be used to shut down all PMDF processes forcefully, and
pmdf shutdown waitcan be used to wait until all PMDF processes have terminated on their own. Both of these commands must be used with caution because normally server processes like IMAP will stay up as long as there are active connections.
