Domain Services for Windows


What services are necessary for Domain Services for Windows and what order are they to be stopped and started?


The easiest way to show the status of each service is to use the 'xadcntrl status' command.  You should first see the Tree Name.  Here is an example:
dsfwserver:~ # xadcntrl status
Tree Name: DSFW-TREE
Server Name: .CN=dsfwserver.OU=novell.dc=mydomain.dc=com.T=DSFW-TREE.
Binary Version: 20217.06
Root Most Entry Depth: 0
Product Version: eDirectory for Linux v8.8 SP4 [DS]

Checking for nameserver BIND
number of zones: 2
debug level: 0
xfers running: 0
xfers deferred: 0
soa queries in progress: 0
query logging is OFF
recursive clients: 0/1000
tcp clients: 0/100
server is up and running
zone details are dumped at /var/opt/novell/log/named/named_zones.info
Checking for Name Service Cache Daemon:                     running
Checking for RPC Endpoint Mapper Service                      running
Checking for Kerberos KDC Service                                   running
Checking for Kerberos Password Change Server             running
Checking for Domain Services Daemon                             running
Checking for Samba NMB daemon                                     running
Checking for Samba  WINBIND daemon                            running
Checking for Samba SMB daemon                                     running

Here is a list of each individual daemon and how to verify they are running the manual way:
ps -eaf | grep ndsd | grep -v grep
ps -eaf | grep novell-name | grep -v grep
ps -eaf | grep nscd | grep -v grep
ps -eaf | grep rpcd | grep -v grep
ps -eaf | grep xad-krb5kdc | grep -v grep
ps -eaf | grep xad-kpasswdd | grep -v grep
ps -eaf | grep xadsd | grep -v grep
ps -eaf | grep nmb | grep -v grep
ps -eaf | grep winbind | grep -v grep
ps -eaf | grep smb | grep -v grep

winbind is usally the daemon that will stop if their is an issue. 

Use the 'xadcntrl start' or 'xadcntrl reload' to start/reload all the dsfw services.

To start the individual services  use the 'rcservice start' command (ex. rcndsd start).  Here is the correct order to start each service.  To stop the services manually do it in reverse order:

Samba has to be last else rpcclient will fail with a NT_STATUS_LOGIN_FAILURE.
