You can perform the following management functions for high-availability services through the luci server component of Conga:
  • Configure a service.
  • Stop or start a service.
  • Restart a service.
  • Delete a service
To perform one the functions in the preceding list, follow the steps in this section. The starting point of the procedure is at the cluster-specific page that you navigate to from Choose a cluster to administer displayed on the cluster tab.
  1. At the detailed menu for the cluster (below the clusters menu), click Services. Clicking Services causes the display of services for the cluster in the center of the page.
  2. At the right of each service listed on the page, click the Choose a task drop-down box. Clicking Choose a task drop-down box reveals the following selections depending on if the service is running:
    • If service is running — Configure this service, Restart this service, and Stop this service.
    • If service is not running — Configure this service, Start this service, and Delete this service.
    The actions of each function are summarized as follows:

Selecting Configure this service causes the services configuration page for the service to be displayed. On that page, you can change the configuration of the service.

(For more information about adding resources and services, refer to Section 3.8, “Adding Cluster Resources” and Section 3.9, “Adding a Cluster Service to the Cluster”.) In addition, a drop-down box on the page provides other functions depending on if the service is running.
