Stopping Server Manager and all services

Server Manager is intended to run at all times, but there might be a time when you need to stop Server Manager and all services running on a grid node.

Before you begin

You must have the Passwords.txt file.

About this task

The only scenario that requires you to stop Server Manager while keeping the operating system running is when you need to integrate Server Manager to other services. If there is a requirement to stop the Server Manager for servicing of the hardware or reconfiguration of the server, the entire server should be halted.

Steps

  1. From the service laptop, log in to the grid node:
    1. Enter the following command: ssh admin@grid_node_IP
    2. Enter the password listed in the Passwords.txt file.
    3. Enter the following command to switch to root: su -
    4. Enter the password listed in the Passwords.txt file.
    When you are logged in as root, the prompt changes from $ to #.
  2. Stop Server manager and all services running on the grid node: /etc/init.d/servermanager stop
    Server Manager and all services running on the grid node are gracefully terminated.
  3. Log out of the command shell: exit
