How to Update Realm Configuration

 

The following information explains when a SIGHUP (1) signal is sufficient, or insufficient, for updating realm configuration:

  • A SIGHUP (1) signal is sufficient to load any changes that you make to proxy.ini, filter.ini, or *.pro files for the purpose of configuring proxy RADIUS realms.

  • However, when you configure directed realms (proxy.ini, *.dir files, and possibly *.acc, *.aut, and accounting *.ini files as well) you must load configuration changes as follows. If you have added or changed:

    • Any directed accounting methods at all, you must stop and restart the server.

    • Directed authentication methods in which external database (SQL or LDAP) authentication is used, you must stop and restart the server.

    • Directed authentication methods in which local or pass-through (Local, UNIX, Domain, or Host) authentication is used, a SIGHUP (1) signal is sufficient.
