Reload audit_control file or audit service without reboot?

We are running solaris 10 and we are currently auditing everything under the sun on this box.The /var/adm/auditlog was almost 5GB! I made some adjustments to the the /etc/security/audit_control file to tone down the different functions being audited.

How can I reload this file\service without rebooting so that the changes take affect?

Thanks

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. The 'audit' command doesn't have a shutdown option however -s reads in the control file again. That was it!
