Starts the System Resource Controller.
srcmstr /usr/sbin/srcmstr [ -r ]
The srcmstr daemon is the System Resource Controller (SRC). The srcmstr daemon spawns and controls subsystems, handles short subsystem status requests, passes requests on to a subsystem, and handles error notification.
The srcmstr daemon is normally started by using an inittab file entry.
|-r||Accepts remote requests if the daemon is started with the -r flag. If you start srcmstr without the -r flag, remote requests are ignored.
Note:The srcmstr daemon is typically started from inittab. To add the -r flag, edit /etc/inittab and run init q or reboot.
Auditing Events: If the auditing subsystem has been properly configured and is enabled, the srcmstr command will generate the following audit record (event) every time the command is executed:
|SRC_Start||Lists in an audit log the name of the subsystems being started.|
|SRC_Stop||Lists in an audit log the name of the subsystems being stopped.|
See "Setting Up Auditing" in AIX Version 4.3 System Management Guide: Operating System and Devices for more details about how to properly select and group audit events, and how to configure audit event data collection.
|/etc/inittab||Specifies stanzas read by the init command.|
|/etc/objrepos/SRCsubsys||Specifies the SRC Subsystem Configuration Object Class.|
|/etc/objrepos/SRCnotify||Specifies the SRC Notify Method Object Class.|
|/etc/hosts.equiv||Specifies that no remote requests will work if the specified host name is not in the /etc/hosts.equiv file.|
|/etc/services||Defines the sockets and protocols used for Internet services.|
|/dev/SRC||Specifies the AF_UNIX socket file.|
|/dev/.SRC-unix||Specifies the location for temporary socket files.|
