Removing a DoNotStart file for a service

When you remove a DoNotStart file that is preventing a service from starting, you must start that service.

Before you begin

You must have the Passwords.txt file.

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. Remove the DoNotStart file from the service directory: rm /etc/sv/service/DoNotStart
    where service is the name of the service. For example,
    rm /etc/sv/ldr/DoNotStart
  3. Start the service: /etc/init.d/service start
    where service is the name of the service.
  4. Log out of the command shell: exit
