SHUTDOWN(5)                    File Formats Manual                   SHUTDOWN(5)



NAME
       etc/shutdown - server shutdown control file

DESCRIPTION
       If the file etc/shutdown is present it describes when a HylaFAX server is
       to be shutdown and may contain a descriptive message to return to clients
       explaining the reason for the shutdown.  This file is used by the
       hfaxd(8) program.

       The file has the following format:

              <year> <month> <day> <hour> <minute> <deny> <disconnect>
              <shutdown message text>

       The first line defines the date and time the server should be shutdown
       and the time preceding at which unprivileged clients should be denied
       service or disconnected; these fields are described in more detail below.
       Any lines that follow the first are taken as the text of a message to
       return to clients when notifying them of a scheduled shutdown or when
       denying them service.

       <year>    The decimal year; e.g. 1996.

       <month>   The decimal month; e.g. 10 for October.

       <day>     The decimal day of the month in the range [1..31].

       <hour>    The decimal hour since midnight; in the range [0..23].

       <minute>  The decimal minute after the hour; in the range [0..59].

       <deny>    The time prior to the shutdown time at which to deny service to
                 unprivileged clients.  This value is specified as decimal
                 number in the form HHMM; e.g.  130 for 1 hour and 30 minutes.

       <disconnect>
                 Time time prior to the shutdown time at which to disconnect
                 unprivileged clients that are logged in to the server.  This
                 value is specified as a decimal number in the form HHMM.

NOTES
       This file is typically created using the ``SHUT'' command supported by
       hfaxd(8).
