If you need to stop LifeKeeper, type the following command as root to stop it:

  • /opt/LifeKeeper/bin/lkstop
    This command will shut down LifeKeeper on the local system if it is currently running. It will first remove all protected resources from service on the local system then shut down the LifeKeeper daemons.
  • /opt/LifeKeeper/bin/lkstop -f
    This command will skip the section that removes resources from service. The resources will remain running on the local system but will no longer be protected by LifeKeeper.

Disabling Automatic LifeKeeper Restart

If you do not want LifeKeeper to automatically restart when the system is restarted, type the following command:

chkconfig lifekeeper off


systemctl disable lifekeeper

See the chkconfig (or systemctl) man page for further information.
