Starting and Stopping the Server

 < Day Day Up > 



You do not have to start your directory server by hand every time the system is rebooted. Commercial products provide you with tools and instructions on how to start the directory server upon system boot and how to stop it when the system is being shut down. On Microsoft servers, you configure this under "services." In the UNIX world, you have to copy start/stop scripts into the location of the "init" scripts. The exact location of these scripts depends on the UNIX dialect you are using. The architecture, however, is always the same:

The following is a script that starts and stops the server, depending on the parameter it gets:

 slapd start : to start the server slapd stop: to stop the server 

Exhibit 14 shows an example of a start/stop script for LDAP. Exhibit 15 shows the configuration file that controls whether the LDAP server is to be started or stopped during system startup or shutdown.
