startnotd utility: starts the notifyd daemon




Use the startnotd utility to start the notifyd daemon. The notifyd daemon receives and stores notification messages for all users requesting notification by deliver-method message. Only one notification daemon needs to be running for each InfoPrint Manager cell or domain; one notification daemon receives notifications from and services all InfoPrint Manager servers sharing the same name space.

With InfoPrint Manager for AIX or InfoPrint Manager for Linux, you can specify that the notifyd daemon starts whenever the system starts or is rebooted by using the InfoPrint Manager SMIT panels on AIX or InfoPrint Manager Management Interface on Linux.

The notifyd daemon has a monitor that will restart it if it ever stops running. If you want to stop it, to move it to another machine for example, use the stopnotd utility: stops the notifyd daemon.
