Force service to terminate

Contributors netapp-perveilerk

If you need to stop a service immediately, you can use the force-stop command.

What you’ll need

You must have the Passwords.txt file.

Steps
  1. 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. Manually force the service to terminate: service servicename force-stop

    For example:

    service ldr force-stop

    The system waits 30 seconds before terminating the service.

  3. Log out of the command shell: exit
