Chapter 5. System Startup

Chapter 5. System Startup

This chapter covers the basics of getting the system started and provisioning users once the system is operational. It is designed to provide you an understanding of the various mechanisms for provisioning as well as the pros and cons of each method. You can easily automate provisioning, but there are times when manual entry is required too.

First, this chapter reviews the daemons running on a test or demo system so you can see what a correctly installed system should look like from top or ps -ef commands and utilities. Then, the chapter describes the various options for administration of the system, including provisioning. Some specific administrative actions are only available using one method or another. There are others you really should do one way and not another. A simple example of provisioning accounts and users by using a Perl script is provided, plus a script for generating test users.
