Linux and UNIX systems: Restart S-TAP without GIM

Use this procedure for an S-TAP that was installed by script or rpm.


  1. Log on to the database server system by using the root account.
  2. For all non-Red Hat Enterprise Linux
    1. Open the /etc/inittab file for editing.
    2. Un-comment the following two statements by deleting the comment character (: for AIX®, # for all others) at the start of each line:
      #utap:2345:respawn:/usr/local/guardium/guard_stap/guard_stap /usr/local/guardium/guard_stap/guard_tap.ini
    3. Optional. If you are using the TEE monitoring mechanism, un-comment the following two statements by deleting the comment character (: for AIX, # for all others) at the start of each line.
      Note: These processes are not used in the default configuration and must not be started if you are using the K-Tap monitoring mechanism.
      #utee:2345:respawn:/usr/local/guardium/guard_stap/guard_tee /usr/local/guardium/guard_stap/guard_tap.ini
    4. Run the init q command to restart the S-TAP® processes.
  3. For Red Hat Enterprise Linux
    1. List the currently running agents by using the operating system command initctl list. The output shows the agents that are listed as in the following example:
      gim_33264 start/running, process 910
      gsvr_33264 start/running, process 2552
    2. Start each of the agents by using the start <agent> command where agent would be the first entry in the list from a. See the following example.
      start gim_33264 
      start gsvr_33264 
      start guard_utap
  4. To restart using Solaris services:
    bash-3.00# svcadm -v enable guard_utap
    svc:/site/guard_utap:default enabled.
    -bash-3.00# ps -eaf | grep stap
     root  2379     1   0 14:25:57 ?           0:00
    /usr/local/guardium/guard_stap/guard_stap /usr/local/guardium/guard_stap/guard_
        root  2396  1930   0 14:26:00 pts/2       0:00 grep stap
    -bash-3.00# svcs guard_utap
    STATE          STIME    FMRI
    online         14:25:56 svc:/site/guard_utap:default
  5. Run ps -ef | grep stap to verify that S-TAP is running.
  6. From the administrator portal of the Guardium system to which this S-TAP reports, verify that the Status light in the S-TAP control panel is green.
