In general, AIX uses the System Resource Controller to manage daemons, and the ones
related to networking are no exception. The
are used to manually start and stop server processes within the SRC. The
following commands illustrate the facility’s use with several common
stopsrc -g tcpipStop all TCP/IP-related daemons. #
stopsrc -s namedStop the DNS name server. #
startsrc -s inetdStart the master networking server. #
startsrc -g nfsStart all NFS-related daemons.
As these commands illustrate, the
options are used to specify the individual server or server group
(respectively) to which the command applies. As usual, the
lssrc command may be used to display the
status of daemons controlled by the SRC, as in this command, which lists
the servers within the nfs group:
lssrc -g nfsSubsystem Group PID Status biod nfs 344156 active rpc.statd nfs 376926 active rpc.lockd nfs 385120 active nfsd nfs inoperative rpc.mountd nfs inoperative
On this system, the daemons related to accessing remote filesystems are running, while those related to providing remote access to local filesystems are not.
