How are the ex-inittab Processes Managed in OC3C on Linux? (Doc ID 2162381.1)

Last updated on JULY 19, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Convergent Charging Controller - Version 6.0.0 and later
Linux x86-64

Goal

With the new release of Oracle Communications Convergent Charging Controller (OC3C) 6.0 on Oracle Linux, the deprecated inittab is no longer used to manage the Service Management Server (SMS) applications.

<inittab>

# inittab is no longer used when using systemd.
#
# ADDING CONFIGURATION HERE WILL HAVE NO EFFECT ON YOUR SYSTEM.
#
# Ctrl-Alt-Delete is handled by /usr/lib/systemd/system/ctrl-alt-del.target
#
# systemd uses 'targets' instead of runlevels. By default, there are two main targets:
#
# multi-user.target: analogous to runlevel 3
# graphical.target: analogous to runlevel 5
#
# To view current default target, run:
# systemctl get-default
#
# To set a default target, run:
# systemctl set-default TARGET.target
#

</inittab>

On Oracle Solaris, this is unchanged.

This article will explain how to manage the SMS processes when a stop, start, restart, or disabling is required using systemctl.
