stop and start services


Does SuSE 9.x have a GUI tool to stop and start services? I've looked around in YaST but haven't stumbled across the right area.

I'd like to be able to stop and start services while troubleshooting. The Windows and RedHat 9 products that I have worked with in the past offer a GUI tool for this task. Surely SuSE offers something similar?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

It should be (always was up to 9.1) part of YaST.

It should look something like this:

Which is the screen for Network Services.

Hope this helps.

So you click the "enable" button first? Then you can toggle services on or off?

It's actually this pic...select a service in the list, then press the "enable" button to, well, enable the service, and the "disable" button to, er, you know.

okay, as I understand this, the run level editor will allow me to select which services start for a given run level (level 3, level 5, etc.).

what if i want to stop and restart my samba or dhcp server without rebooting the machine? can i do that from YaST as well?

Correct. Although in order to do that, you'll have to select "Expert Mode."

One would think it'd be easier to pull up a console, get root, cd to /etc/init.d, and stop them by hand. (For Samba it'd be "./smb stop", not sure about the dhcp server since I don't use one, but something similar to "./dhcp3-server stop".) You can easily restart them the same way. Typing "./<name of service>" will bring up a list of options.
