The Services screen features a side panel for quick navigation between services.
You can configure the following services on an appliance:
Note: UIDs and GIDs from 0-99 are reserved by the operating system vendor for use in future applications. Their use by end system users or vendors of layered products is not supported and may cause security related issues with future applications.
You use the BUI Services screens to view and modify the services and settings described in tables above. Double click a service line to view the definition screen for that service. The following tables describes the icons and buttons in the services screens:
See the Basic Usage section of the documentation for a full icon list.
To view or edit the properties for a specific service, mouse over the service the status icon that is to the left of the service name. The status icon turns into an arrow icon, which you click to display the properties screen for the selected service.
Note: In any of the services screens, you can show a side panel of all services by clicking the small arrow icon to the left of the Services title (near the top left of each screen). Click this icon again to hide the list.
If a service is not online, click the power icon to bring the service online .
If a service is online and you want to disabled it, click the power icon to take the service offline
You define properties for a service by displaying a service screen (double click a service). Change the properties and then click the APPLY button. Use the REVERT button to reset properties to the state they were in before you edited them.
Some service screens also provide service logs that provide information to help you diagnose service issues. If a Logs button exists in the top right of a service screen, that service provide logs. Logs can provide information about:
Times when a service changed state
Error messages from the service
Log content is specific to each individual service and is subject to change with future updates to the appliance software. The following are example messages that are commonly used in this version of the appliance:
The following example is from the NTP service:
[ Oct 11 21:05:31 Enabled. ] [ Oct 11 21:07:37 Executing start method (...). ] [ Oct 11 21:13:38 Method "start" exited with status 0. ]
The first log event in the example shows that the system was booted at 21:05. The second entry at 21:07:37 records that the service began startup, which completed at 21:13:38. Due to the nature of NTP and system clock adjustment, this service can take minutes to complete startup, as shown by the log.
The CLI services section is under configuration services. Use the show command to list the current state of all services:
caji:> configuration services caji:configuration services> show Services: ad => disabled smb => disabled dns => online dynrouting => online ftp => disabled http => disabled identity => online idmap => online ipmp => online iscsi => online ldap => disabled ndmp => online nfs => online nis => disabled ntp => disabled replication => online scrk => disabled sftp => disabled shadow => online smtp => online snmp => disabled ssh => online syslog => disabled tags => online tftp => disabled vscan => disabled Children: ad => Configure Active Directory smb => Configure SMB dns => Configure DNS dynrouting => Configure Dynamic Routing ftp => Configure FTP http => Configure HTTP identity => Configure System Identity idmap => Configure Identity Mapping ipmp => Configure IPMP iscsi => Configure iSCSI ldap => Configure LDAP ndmp => Configure NDMP nfs => Configure NFS nis => Configure NIS ntp => Configure NTP replication => Configure Remote Replication scrk => Configure Phone Home sftp => Configure SFTP shadow => Configure Shadow Migration smtp => Configure SMTP snmp => Configure SNMP srp => Configure SRP ssh => Configure SSH syslog => Configure Syslog tags => Configure Service Tags tftp => Configure TFTP vscan => Configure Virus Scan routing => Configure Routing Table
Select a service by entering its name. For example, to select nis:
caji:configuration services> nis caji:configuration services nis>
After you select a service, you can view its state, enable it, disable it, and set its properties.
You can view a service's state using the show command:
caji:configuration services nis> show Properties: <status> = online domain = fishworks broadcast = true ypservers =
Use the enable command to enable a service:
caji:configuration services nis> enable
Use the disable command to disable a service:
caji:configuration services nis> disable
Use the set command to set the properties for the selected service. After setting the properties, use the commit command to save and activate the new configuration:
caji:configuration services nis> set domain="mydomain" domain = mydomain (uncommitted) caji:configuration services nis> commit caji:configuration services nis> show Properties: <status> = online domain = mydomain broadcast = true ypservers =
Note: Property names are similar to their names in the BUI, but CLI names are usually shorter and sometimes abbreviated.
You cannot view service logs from the CLI. Use the BUI as described above.
Type help to see all commands for a service:
caji:configuration services nis> help Subcommands that are valid in this context: help [topic] => Get context-sensitive help. If [topic] is specified, it must be one of "builtins", "commands", "general", "help", "script" or "properties". show => Show information pertinent to the current context commit => Commit current state, including any changes done => Finish operating on "nis" enable => Enable the nis service disable => Disable the nis service get [prop] => Get value for property [prop]. ("help properties" for valid properties.) If [prop] is not specified, returns values for all properties. set [prop] => Set property [prop] to [value]. ("help properties" for valid properties.) For properties taking list values, [value] should be a comma-separated list of values.
