- The method for restarting services varies by platform:
- To restart Authentication Services on Linux or Oracle Solaris, enter:
- To restart Authentication Services on HP-UX, enter:
- To restart Authentication Services on AIX, enter:
stopsrc -s vasd
startsrc -s vasd
Note: Due to library changes between the Authentication Services 4.1 and 4.2, the system may need to be rebooted before all processes load the new libraries.
To uninstall the Authentication Services agent packages
- Log in and open a root shell.
- Run the following commands to remove the packages.
See Additional configuration information that follows the table.
Table 33: Authentication Services: Agent uninstall commands
||# rpm -e vasclnt|
||# dpkg -r vaslcnt|
||# pkgrm vasclnt|
||# swremove vasclnt|
||# installp -u vasclnt |
/<mount>/Uninstall.app/Contents/MacOS/Uninstall' --console --force vasclnt
pkg delete <package name>
Additional configuration information
- Linux: The rpm –e vasclnt and the dpkg -r vaslcnt commands run scripts that halt the daemon, unconfigure Authentication Services, flush, and delete the Authentication Services cache before finally removing the files.
- HP-UX: The swremove vasclnt command does not clean up the empty directories that the vasclnt package used. In order to clean these up, manually remove the /opt/quest directory after you uninstall.
Zones (or containers) were introduced in Oracle Solaris 10. Zones is a partitioning technology used to virtualize operating system services and provide an isolated and secure environment for running applications. There are two types of non-global zone root filesystem models:
The sparse root zone model optimizes the sharing of objects while the whole root zone model provides the maximum configurability. Additional information on Oracle Solaris 10 and Zones can be found at www.sun.com.
To install Authentication Services in a Oracle Solaris 10 Zones configuration
Each zone must have its own unique copy of /etc and /var because Authentication Services stores zone-specific information in those locations. Sharing /etc and /var with the global zone is not a supported configuration.
