I need to restart xinetd on Linux (suse) server with multiple people logged on.  Could this have any adverse affect on others logged into the system?

Did you just make a config change?  Do an 'xinetd reload' instead of restart.

If you do need to restart it, why?  If it doesn't come back up for whatever reason your users probably won't be happy.

I should clarify though, it depends on what xinetd is managing and what your users are doing, but yes it could very well be bad if it didn't come back up.

Yes, Details are important in you situation.  If the users are logged on and not using anything on the Web Server, then there would be no effect.  If they are using an application that is running on the Web Server, then they will clearly be affected.

I administer the server backups at my company and need to restart the netbackup client.  When it's managed by xinetd, I have to restart xinetd to restart the netbackup client.  I was under the impression that the xinetd service was mainly used to start a session of a network application.

Thanks for your replies.
