coldstart command

The coldstart command initiates the sequence of activities that must be performed each time the system is powered on. Additionally, the coldstart command initializes the transaction log queue limit to 0 on a full restore and during a patch installation.

This is the last step in the system boot sequence. coldstart sets (or prompts for) the time and date, starts the printer, starts the spooler subsystem and phantom ports, and resets the accounting history file.

Any site-specific coldstart processes should be placed into an item called user-coldstart in the master dictionary of the dm account.

Warning: The coldstart command should not be invoked while other users are active.

Prior to executing this on a running system, ensure that all printers and spooler processes are stopped.
