BRC(8)                                                     BRC(8)

     NAME
          brc - Plan B boot script

     SYNOPSIS
          brc

     DESCRIPTION
          After the kernel boots, it execs /boot (see root(3)), which
          in turn execs /$cputype/bin/bns.  bns(8) sets the $service
          environment variable to terminal, starts the dynamic names-
          pace facility of Plan B, auto-declares volumes for / and usr
          and finally, after mounting itself using namespace.planb(4),
          invokes the brc script to bring the system up.

          This script starts appropriate network processes and admin-
          istrative daemons and services.

          This file reflects the configuration of the system.

          In general, a Plan B brc starts the network, any local file
          system, and whatever local volumes are present for the
          machine. It also sets the machine location.
