Restarting the Services

Describes how to restart a service using either the Control System, the CLI or the REST API.

About this task

When a HPE Ezmeral Data Fabric system is rebooted, the following services are automatically restarted:
  • mapr-warden
  • mapr-zookeeper
  • mapr-loopbacknfs
  • mapr-posix-client-*
These services are also automatically restarted if they are shut down externally (as opposed to being shut down explicitly via service or sysctl commands).
NOTE This feature is implemented with systemd and is only supported on the following operating systems:
  • RHEL 7.0, 7.1
  • CentOS 7.0, 7.1
  • SLES 12
This feature is not supported on any of the Ubuntu versions that HPE Ezmeral Data Fabric currently supports.

You can restart one or more services using the Control System and the CLI if the services are not disabled. However, if a service is disabled, the service cannot be restarted. To restart a service, make sure the service is enabled. See Enabling and Disabling a Service Using the CLI and REST API for more information.
