Administering the AMF kernel driver

Review the following procedures to start, stop, or unload the AMF kernel driver.

To start the AMF kernel driver

  1. Set the value of the AMF_START variable to 1 in the following file, if the value is not already set to 1:

    AIX and Solaris: /etc/default/amf

    HP-UX: /etc/rc.config.d/amf

    Linux: /etc/sysconfig/amf

  2. Start the AMF kernel driver. Run the following command:

    AIX: /etc/init.d/amf.rc start
    HP-UX: /sbin/init.d/amf start
    Linux and Solaris 9: /etc/init.d/amf start
    Solaris 10: svcadm enable amf

To stop the AMF kernel driver

  1. Set the value of the AMF_START variable to 0 in the following file, if the value is not already set to 0:

    AIX and Solaris: /etc/default/amf

    HP-UX: /etc/rc.config.d/amf

    Linux: /etc/sysconfig/amf

  2. Stop the AMF kernel driver. Run the following command:

    AIX: /etc/init.d/amf.rc stop
    HP-UX: /sbin/init.d/amf stop
    Linux and Solaris 9: /etc/init.d/amf stop
    Solaris 10: svcadm disable amf

To unload the AMF kernel driver

Unload the AMF kernel driver only after performing the following tasks:

  1. Stop the agents that are registered with the AMF kernel driver.

    The amfstat command output lists the agents that are registered with AMF under the Registered Reapers section. For more information about the amfstat command, see the manual page for the command.

  2. Stop the AMF kernel driver by using the platform-specific command.

  3. Start the agents.

To unload the AMF kernel driver with minimum downtime

  1. Run the following command to disable the AMF driver even if agents are still registered with it.

    amfconfig -Uof
  2. Stop the AMF kernel driver by using the platform-specific command.
