Enable or Disable RPC Services

On Mac endpoints, you can enable or disable remote procedure calls used by the Traps agent and daemons using the cytool rpc [enable|disable] <process_name|all> command. RPCs are used by the Traps agent and daemons to access persistent databases, change log levels, and connect or disconnect from the ESM Server.
  1. Open a terminal as an administrator and navigate to the Traps folder (see Access Cytool).
  2. To enable RPC services for all daemons and the Traps agent, use the cytool rpc enable all command:
    PANM2637HQ:bin jdoe$  sudo ./cytool rpc enable all
                      Password:
  3. To enable RPC services for a specific service, use the cytool rpc enable <process_name> command, for example:
    PANM2637HQ:bin jdoe$  sudo ./cytool rpc enable trapsd
                      Password:
  4. To disable RPC services for all daemons and the Traps agent, use the cytool rpc disable all command:
    PANM2637HQ:bin jdoe$  sudo ./cytool rpc disable all
                      Password:
  5. To disable RPC services for a specific service, use the cytool rpc disable <process_name> command, for example:
    PANM2637HQ:bin jdoe$  sudo ./cytool rpc disable trapsd
                      Password:
