By default, the PingDirectoryProxy Server does not start automatically when the system is booted. Instead, you must manually start it with the bin/start-server command. To configure the Directory Proxy Server to start automatically when the system boots, use the create-systemd-script utility to create a script, or create the script manually.
Create the service unit configuration file in a temporary location where "ds" is the user
the PingDirectoryProxy will run as.
$ bin/create-systemd-script \ --outputFile /tmp/ping-directory.service \ --userName ds
- As a root user, copy the ping-directory.service configuration file into the /etc/systemd/system directory.
Reload systemd to read the new configuration file.
$ systemctl daemon-reload
To start the PingDirectoryProxy, use the start command.
$ systemctl start ping-directory.service
To configure the PingDirectoryProxy to start automatically when the
system boots, use the enable command.
$ systemctl enable ping-directory.service
Log out as root.
If on an RC system, this task is done by creating the startup script with bin/create-rc-script and moving it to the /etc/init.d directory. Create symlinks to it from the /etc/rc3.d directory (staring with an “S” to ensure that the server is started) and /etc/rc0.d directory (starting with a “K” to ensure that the server is stopped).
