13.2.3. Starting and Stopping SSSD


Configure at least one domain before starting SSSD for the first time. See Section 13.2.10, “SSSD and Identity Providers (Domains)”.
Either the service command or the /etc/init.d/sssd script can start SSSD. For example:
~]# service sssd start
By default, SSSD is not configured to start automatically. There are two ways to change this behavior:
  • Enabling SSSD through the authconfig command:
    ~]# authconfig --enablesssd --enablesssdauth --update
  • Adding the SSSD process to the start list using the chkconfig command:
    ~]# chkconfig sssd on
