CA Single Sign On Agents (SiteMinder)

Issue/Introduction

As per my understanding, when we stop the sps-ctl services, it will automatically stop httpd and java along with the gateway services.

We have observed recently, while stopping sps-ctl, httpd does not stop automatically. 

Since there is no service to kill httpd service independetly. Wanted to clarify on services part and its functionalities.

Access gateway 12.8 SP04

Operating system RHEL7

 

Environment

Release : 12.8

Component : SITEMINDER -WEB AGENT FOR APACHE

Resolution

if you open the sps-ctl , you will find the below

# Environment Setup PROXY_HOME=/opt/CA/secure-proxy . ${PROXY_HOME}/ca_sps_env.sh # Always start and stop Apache with apachectl HTTPSDCTL="/opt/CA/secure-proxy/httpd/bin/apachectl"

So that script will pretty much call the HTTPSDCTL="/opt/CA/secure-proxy/httpd/bin/apachectl" stop

The above will stop the Apache. 

If you are not seeing Apache stopped , it is most likely permission issue.

check your httpd.conf and what you used as user and group  and then check the Error log of Apache see if it is getting the shutdown signal and check what is the error

But, to answer it will shutdown Tomact and Apache,
