The xfnts_stop Method

Because the xfnts_start method uses scds_pmf_start to start the service under PMF, xfnts_stop uses scds_pmf_stop to stop the service.

Note –

The first call in xfnts_stop is to scds_initialize, which performs some necessary house-keeping functions (see The scds_initialize Call and the scds_initialize(3HA) man page for details.

The xfnts_stop method calls the svc_stop method, which is defined in xfnts.c as follows.

Example 8–11

scds_syslog(LOG_ERR, "Issuing a stop request.");
   err = scds_pmf_stop(scds_handle,

   if (err != SCHA_ERR_NOERR) {
          "Failed to stop HA-XFS.");
      return (1);

       "Successfully stopped HA-XFS.");
   return (SCHA_ERR_NOERR); /* Successfully stopped */

Note the following about the call in svc_stop to the scds_pmf_stop function.

Note –

Before it exits, the xfnts_stop method calls scds_close to reclaim resources allocated by scds_initialize. See The scds_initialize Call and the scds_close(3HA) man page for details.
