Thread: Restart sd-pam without reboot

    Default Restart sd-pam without reboot

    Hello all,

    I am using OpenSuse 13.1. After some updates "zypper ps" shows me something like this:

    Code:
    PID   | PPID  | UID  | Login   | Befehl   | Dienst | Dateien
    ------+-------+------+---------+----------+--------+------------------------
    4610  | 1     | 1000 | torsten | systemd  |        | /lib/libdbus-1.so.3.8.7
    4611  | 4610  | 1000 | torsten | (sd-pam) |        | /lib/libdbus-1.so.3.8.7
    4682  | 1     | 486  | munin   | systemd  |        | /lib/libdbus-1.so.3.8.7
    4683  | 4682  | 486  | munin   | (sd-pam) |        | /lib/libdbus-1.so.3.8.7
    4684  | 1     | 0    | root    | systemd  |        | /lib/libdbus-1.so.3.8.7
    4685  | 4684  | 0    | root    | (sd-pam) |        | /lib/libdbus-1.so.3.8.7
    I didn't find a way to restart the processes besides a complete reboot. Google didn't help me.
    Can someone tell me how to restart the processes without a reboot?

    Best
    Torsten

    I do not know what sd-pam is (can only guess it's related to pam),
    But a search suggests that it's a library used by other processes.

    So, typically if you know what parent service is using sd-pam you can just restart the service
    Code:
    systemctl restart servicenmane 
    HTH,

    Thanks for the help. While trying to figure out what the parent service is I stumbled over three services with names like "user@$UID$.service", where "$UID$" were exactly the three UID in the table. Restarting these services did the job, although I do not know what these services are exactly doing.

    As long as it works, we don't always need to know what's actually happening...
