The right way to restart sssd ?

Asked by Yvan Masson


Running an up to date Ubuntu 14.04 with sssd in an Active Directory environment (perfectly working), I can not use "service sssd foo" anymore (I am almost sure it worked before):

# service sssd status
status: Unknown task : sssd

Indeed, "service --status-all" does not mention sssd.

For now, I have to kill it and then restart it with parameters found in /etc/default/sssd.conf. It woks, but it is not "clean" in my opinion. In contrast, what I does not understand is that the service is well started on boot (the file /etc/init/sssd.conf is present on the system).

Maybe someone more confident with upstart could give me a hint…

I suggest you report a bug. You could make a service file so that it can be stopped and started as you expect. If you do, submit it as a fix for the bug

Can you help with this problem?
