lb_find Command


Gets a list of global location broker (GLB) server daemons and their attributes.


lb_find [ -q ] [ -v ] [ -dl ]


lb_find sends out inquiries to the NCS location broker daemons and gathers the responses. The results are analyzed to determine whether the global location broker is replicatable, and which cell each daemon serves. After ten seconds, the results are summarized, showing the GLB broker type, the server host's network address, a cell name of either default or alternate_N, and the cell's UUID.


-q Queries for a GLB server, using the standard RPC mechanism. At most, one GLB server is printed, and only servers in the current machine's cell are searched. The program exits with a status of 0 if a GLB server is found; otherwise the status is nonzero.
-v Prints out the NCS version string.
-dl Turns on RPC debugging while searching for GLB servers.


A network contains one glbd in each of two NCS cells and one nrglbd in a third cell.
