5 Managing an Advanced Server Installation : 5.2 Controlling a Service on Linux

Advanced Server 9.5 is the first release that is supported on a Linux version that implements the systemd service manager. If your installation of Advanced Server resides on version 7.x of RHEL and CentOS, you must use the systemctl command to control the Advanced Server service and supporting components.
The systemctl command must be in your search path and must be invoked with superuser privileges. To use the command, open a command line, and enter:
systemctl action service_name
service_name specifies the name of the service.
action specifies the action taken by the service command. Specify:
start to start the service.
stop to stop the service.
restart to stop and then start the service.
status to discover the current status of the service.
