Remove DoNotStart file for service

Contributors netapp-perveilerk

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

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. 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: service servicename start

  4. Log out of the command shell: exit
