ChorusOS 4.0 Introduction

Deactivating a Target

A target can be deactivated to disconnect the DebugServer from the DebugAgent and release the serial device used by the DebugServer. When a target is deactivated, the DebugAgent switches to a stand-alone mode. The chconsole must no longer be used as the DebugServer does not read the serial line any more. Instead, you must start the tip(1) or cu(1C) tools to gain access to the system debugging console.

A target may be temporarily removed (deactivated) with the following command:

% chadmin -deactivate name

name is the name of your target.

When a target is deactivated, it is not removed from the DebugServer configuration file so that it is possible to reactivate it later.
