7.2 Restarting the Novell eDirectory (ndsd) Daemon

When you modify NCP Server settings by using Novell Remote Manager for Linux, NCP Server automatically restarts the Novell eDirectory daemon to apply the new settings. If you modify values for any of the DST global parameters for NCP Server by directly editing the /etc/opt/novell/ncpserv.conf file, you must restart the Novell eDirectory daemon to put the changes into effect.

Use the following steps to stop and start ndsd when a single instance is running. For information about stopping and starting ndsd when you are running multiple instances of it on the same server, see Managing Multiple Instances in the Novell eDirectory 8.8 What’s New.

IMPORTANT:Restarting or stopping ndsd automatically disconnects all user connections and does not warn users before the connection is broken. Users can reconnect to the server after the service starts.

  1. Use one of the following commands to stop ndsd:

    rcndsd stop
    /etc/init.d/ndsd stop
  2. Use one of the following commands to start ndsd:

    rcndsd start
    /etc/init.d/ndsd start
