Enable Disable or Recycle the Metadata Access Service

Enable Disable or Recycle the Metadata Access Service

You can enable, disable, or recycle the Metadata Access Service. You might disable the Metadata Access Service if you need to perform maintenance or you need to temporarily restrict users from using the service. You might recycle the service if you changed a service property or if you updated the role for a node assigned to the service.
The number of service processes that start when you enable the Metadata Access Service depends on the following components which the service can run on:
Single node
When you enable a Metadata Access Service that runs on a single node, a service process starts on the node.
Primary and back-up nodes
When you enable a Metadata Access Service configured to run on primary and back-up nodes, a service process is available to run on each node, but only the service process on the primary node starts. For example, you have the high availability option and you configure a Metadata Access Service to run on a primary node and two back-up nodes. You enable the Metadata Access Service, which enables a service process on each of the three nodes. A single process runs on the primary node, and the other processes on the back-up nodes maintain standby status.
When you disable the Metadata Access Service, you shut down the Metadata Access Service and disable all service processes.
When you recycle the Metadata Access Service, the Service Manager restarts the service.
