vxsvc - The Veritas Enterprise Administrator Service

The last time I rebooted my HPUX server the vxsvc didnt stop so I had to kill it manually. So I edited the /etc/rc.config.d/veaservice so it wouldnt start on the next reboot. My question is..Will this effect my vxfs filesystems on the next reboot?? Or are they different services??

Hi,

" vxsvc is the server process of the VEA environment. It is probably a JAVA environment which explains the the runaway process. You can safely kill and restart it.
"

For more information look at this:

Re: vxsvc - The Veritas Enterprise Administrator Service

Hi,


The file /etc/shutdownlog could have clues about the last shutdown process. Also you could analyze the following files:
/var/adm/syslog/OLDsyslog.log, to see what might be causing the problem.
/etc/rc.log, to see if a service fails during the restart.
/var/adm/syslog/ syslog.log, to see if the problem is persistent after the restart.

Which version is HP-UX?
Machine model?
