 NAME
      cds_intro - Introduction to the CDS commands

 DESCRIPTION
      The DCE Cell Directory Service provides the following management
      commands:


      o The cdsbrowser command starts the CDS Browser utility.	This utility
	is based on the OSF/Motif graphical user interface.  The Browser can
	display an overall directory structure as well as show the contents
	of directories.

      o The cdscp command starts the CDS control program.  Use this command
	line interface to manage the CDS components and the contents of your
	namespace.


      The following commands are typically started automatically by scripts
      that execute as part of normal system start-up procedures. See the
      reference pages for these commands before you try to use them.


      o The cdsadv command starts the advertisement and solicitation daemon
	on the local system and then starts clerks as needed by
	applications.  Use this command only when troubleshooting because it
	creates and automatically starts the CDS clerk whenever the host
	system is rebooted.

      o The cdsd command restarts the CDS server.  Use this command only
	when troubleshooting because it starts the CDS server process
	automatically whenever the host system is rebooted.

      o The gdad command starts the GDA (Global Directory Agent) daemon. The
	GDA enables intercell communication, serving as a connection to
	other cells through the global naming environment.  The GDA is
	typically started automatically by scripts that execute as part of
	normal system start-up and shutdown procedures.
