Issue/Introduction

Learn how to start, stop, disable, or restart services for Symantec Data Loss Prevention (DLP) for Linux.

Resolution

DLP runs as a set of services in Linux. There are commands that simplify managing these DLP services.

To stop, start, or restart a service, use the service(8) command as root:

# service < option > | --status-all | [ service_name [ command | --full-restart ] ]

For example:

service SymantecDLPDetectionServerControllerService stop
service SymantecDLPIncidentPersisterService stop
service SymantecDLPManagerService stop
service SymantecDLPNotifierService stop

You can also use this command to see the status of the DLP services:

# service --status-all |grep -i dlp

Example output:

SymantecDLPDetectionServerControllerService is running (3497)
SymantecDLPIncidentPersisterService is running (3987)
SymantecDLPManagerService is running (3077)
SymantecDLPNotifierService is running (3150)

To disable a DLP service so that it does not start after restarting the computer, use chkconfig(8). You can also use this command to enable it later.

# chkconfig [--level <levels>] <name> <on|off|reset>

To disable a service, use the following command:

# chkconfig <service> off

To enable a service, use the following command:

# chkconfig <service> on
