You can control SGD from the command line using the /opt/tarantella/bin/tarantella command.
tarantella option [ option-specific-arguments ]
Do not try to control the SGD server by running binaries directly, or by using kill. Using the tarantella command is the only supported way of controlling the SGD server.
The options for this command enable you to control the SGD server in different ways, or produce information about the SGD server. The tarantella command can be used in your own shell scripts to help automate your administration of SGD.
If the SGD server is running, most tarantella options can be run by root or any user in the ttaserv group. The ttaserv group does not have to be the user’s primary or effective group. See the table below for details of which users can use the command options.
If the SGD server is stopped, only root can use the tarantella command.
The following table shows the available options for this command.
Note - All commands include a --help option. You can use tarantella command --help to get help on a specific command.
The following example stops and then restarts the SGD server, without displaying any messages.
# tarantella restart sgd --quiet
The following example adds a link for the Write-o-Win application to the assigned applications for members of the Global Administrators role.
$ tarantella role add_link --role global \ --link "o=applications/cn=Write-o-Win"
