Making Changes to Multiple LCFG Source Files in an Atomic Manner

You may want to stop profile compilation on the LCFG servers for a short time, so that you can edit a series of source or header files, and all the changes happen in the same server pass. Do this with the rfe lcfgstop command:
  1. If you can, tell the Managed Platforms Unit that you are about to do this.
  2. Type rfe lcfgstop and type a message into the file - for example "Fred is editing foo.h and bar.h" and save it.
  3. If the LCFG servers are in the middle of compiling profiles, they will finish compiling them. Profile generation will stop a few seconds later. Your message will then appear in the LCFG server logs (/var/lcfg/log/server on each LCFG slave server).
  4. Make your changes as required.
  5. Type rfe lcfgstop a second time. This time simply delete your explanation: empty the file and save it. This restarts profile generation.
