About Platform Services for UNIX#

Platform Services for UNIX consists of three major components.
  • Platform Services Process: The Platform Services Process receives requests from other processes and manages communications with one or more core drivers for Authentication Services.
  • System Intercept: The System Intercept is implemented in most UNIX systems using a Pluggable Authentication Module (PAM). The Platform Services PAM module communicates with the Platform Services Process for password verification and password changes.
  • Platform Receiver: The Platform Receiver requests provisioning events from Event Journal Services and runs a Receiver script to carry out the appropriate action for each event as it is received.

Starting and Stopping#

Starting and Stopping the Platform Services Process#

Start the Platform Service Process upon system startup and stop the Platform Service Process during system shutdown. To start the Platform Services Process, use the following command:
/usr/local/ASAM/bin/PlatformServices/PlatformServicesProcess/asampsp
To stop the Platform Services Process, use the kill command.

NOTE: Optional Startup/Shutdown scripts are provided in the ASAM/data/UnixStartupScripts directory. When installed you can then use:

/etc/init.d/asampspd { start | stop }

Starting and Stopping the Platform Receiver#

Schedule running the Platform Receiver as appropriate for the mode of operation that you have chosen for it. If you are using Persistent Mode or Polling Mode, start the Platform Receiver during system startup and stop the Platform Receiver during system shutdown. If you are using Scheduled Mode, use cron or a similar utility to run the Platform Receiver on a schedule that is appropriate for you. For information about choosing a mode of operation, see the Platform Services Planning Guide and Reference. To start the Platform Receiver, use the following command:
/usr/local/ASAM/bin/PlatformServices/PlatformReceiver/asamrcvr
To stop the Platform Receiver, use the kill command.

NOTE: Optional Startup/Shutdown scripts are provided in the ASAM/data/UnixStartupScripts directory. When installed you can use:

/etc/init.d/asamrcvrd { start | stop }
