service stop

Stop a service on the Luna appliance. Customer support might ask you to stop a particular service. Or, you may wish to control which functions are available on the Luna appliance. For example, if you are performing maintenance and prefer that nobody be able to use the NTLA to connect to the Luna Network HSM, you can stop the NTLS service. A user performing maintenance via the serial port can stop the SSH service to prevent anyone from accessing the Luna appliance.

Use the service list command to display a list of services that you can stop.

NOTE   Issuing service stop network stops the network service. Stopping the network service stops all network traffic (SSH, NTLS, etc.), and any network commands issued thereafter will fail. If the CTC service was running, it also stops. You can start the network service using the service start network command from a serial port connection or by rebooting the appliance using the sysconf appliance reboot command.
