Starts up one or more managed systems

For virtual systems running under Xen, VServers or Zones, Cloudmin can start up existing instances using this command. The command will only exit when all the specified systems have been booted.

The --wait-for-ssh flag will cause this API command to only return once an SSH connection to the system can be established. Conversely,
the --no-wait flag will cause the command to return as soon as the virtual system has been launched. Otherwise, Cloudmin will wait until the system can be pinged, for up to 60 seconds.

The --check-disks flag can be used to force a fsck of all virtual system disks before startup, to prevent boot failures caused by an unclean shutdown.

Example usage

  cloudmin startup-system --host xencentos.home
  Starting up Xen system xencentos.home ..
  .. startup successful
