G.0 OES Service Scripts

Open Enterprise Server services rely on specific service scripts located in /usr/lib/systemd/system. The scripts used by OES, some of which are standard Linux scripts, are listed in Table G-1.

IMPORTANT:For managing OES services, we strongly recommend using the browser-based tools outlined in Section 9.1, Overview of Management Interfaces and Services. The browser-based tools provide error checking not available at the service-script level, and they ensure that management steps happen in the sequence required to maintain service integrity.

Services Associated with Scripts

Script Name

Notes

Apache Web server

apache2.service

This lets you start, stop, and restart the Apache Web Server.

Distributed File Services

novell-dfs.service

This lets you start and stop the VLDB service.

DNS (NetIQ eDirectory enhanced)

novell-named.service

This works in connection with named to provide eDirectory DNS services.

Domain services Daemon

xadsd.service

 

Dynamic Storage Technology

novell-shadowfs.service

This script starts and stops the shadowfs daemon and the kernel module fuse.

eDirectory

ndsd.service

This lets you start and stop eDirectory. It executes the /usr/sbin/ndsd binary.

eDirectory LDAP support

nldap

This lets you load and unload the LDAP library that eDirectory uses to provide LDAP support. It is not actually a service.

FTP

pure-ftpd.service

This is used by the Novell FTP pattern.

iPrint

cups

novell-idsd.service

novell-ipsmd.service

These scripts are required by iPrint

cups lets you to start and stop the cupsd daemon that provides spooling and printing functionality for local and remote printers and is always required, even if printers are broadcasted ("Browsing") into (sub)nets.

novell-ipsmd.service lets you to start and stop the ipsmd daemon that manages printers that are assigned under a Print Manager.

novell-idsd.service lets you to start and stop the idsd daemon that manages drivers that are assigned under a Driver Store.

Kerberos KDC Service

xad-krb5kdc.service

 

Kerberos Password Change Server

xad-kpasswdd.service

 

Linux User Management

namcd.service

nscd.service

These daemons are required by Linux User Management and work together to ensure good performance.

The namcd daemon caches user and group names and IDs from eDirectory, speeding subsequent lookups of cached users and groups.

The nscd daemon caches host names and addresses.

Logging

rsyslog.service

This is used for logging by many OES services.

Name Service Cache Daemon

nscd.service

 

Novell AFP

novell-afptcpd.service

This script starts and stops the afptcpd daemon, which is the Novell AFP service daemon

Novell AFP

avahi-daemon.service

This is used by AFPtcpd to advertise itself.

Novell CIFS

novell-cifs.service

This script starts and stops the cifsd daemon, which is the Novell CIFS service daemon

Novell DHCP

dhcpd.service

 

NetStorage (actually XTier)

novell-xregd.service

novell-xsrvd.service

NetStorage runs inside the novell-xsrvd XTier Web Services daemon, and also utilizes Tomcat services for certain other functions.

novell-xregd.service is the script for starting and stopping XTier’s registry daemon. It is part of the novell-xtier-base RPM and is enabled by default for run levels 2, 3, and 5.

novell-xsrvd is the script for starting and stopping XTier’s Web services daemon. It is also part of the novell-xtier-web RPM and is enabled for run levels 2, 3, and 5.

Novell Cluster Services (NCS)

adminfs.service

This is used for NCS through iManager and the command line interface.

Novell Cluster Services (NCS)

novell-ncs.service

NCS uses some shell scripts and utilities that come with the heartbeat package. For example, NCS uses a binary called send_arp to send out ARP packets when a secondary address is bound.

NCS never runs the heartbeat daemons. In fact, NCS and heartbeat are mutually exclusive when it comes to execution, and heartbeat must always be configured to not run (chkconfig heartbeat off) when NCS is loaded on the server.

Novell Identity Translator

novell-nit.service

This script runs by default on every OES 2015 SP1 and later server with NSS volumes and provides user IDs (UIDs) for NSS file access.

Use rcnovell-nit followed by start, stop, restart, or status to view or alter the run state as needed.

or

Use systemctl start/stop/restart/status novell-nit.service to start, stop, restart or view the status.

OES Remote Manager (NRM)

novell-httpstkd.service

This script runs by default on every OES server and enables access to NRM for Linux through a browser.

Use this script followed by the status option to view current status. Or use stop, start, or restart options to alter the run state of the NRM daemon as needed.

Novell Storage Services

novell-nss.service

This script runs by default on every OES server with NSS volumes and enables access to the NSS runtime environment.

To see if the NSS kernel modules and NSS admin volume are running, enter systemctl status novell-nss.service, or rcnovell-nss status at a command prompt. If they are not running, use the start option to start them. You cannot stop NSS.

NSS Auditing

novell-vigil.service

This is the NSS auditing daemon.

NTP

ntp.service

This is the SLES 12 Network Time Protocol daemon.

Patching

novell-zmd.service

This is the GUI patch updater daemon.

RPC Daemon

rpcd.service

 

rsync daemon

rsyncd.service

DSfW depends on this

Samba

nmb.service

This is the Samba NetBIOS naming daemon.

Samba CIFS support

smb.service

Samba WINBIND daemon

winbind.service

 

SFCB CIMOM

sblim-sfcb.service

This is used to start the SFCB CIMOM daemon, which is an integral part of the iManager plug-ins for LUM, Samba, NSS, SMS, and NCS. AFP, CIFS, iPrint, and NRM also use SFCB.

OES Remote Manager on OES gets its server health information from CIMOM.

SLP support

slpd.service

Tomcat

novell-tomcat.service
