Stopping, Starting, or Restarting the JumpCloud Agent

For troubleshooting, it may be necessary to check, or change the status of the JumpCloud agent.




To check or change the agent status on a Mac, run as root
[root@mymac ~]# launchctl list | grep jumpcloud
23392    -15    com.jumpcloud.darwin-agent
With process snapshot 
[root@mymac ~]# ps -fax | grep jumpcloud
    0 23392     1   0  6:06PM ??         0:00.01 /bin/bash ./jumpcloud-service.sh
    0 23398 23392   0  6:06PM ??         0:00.26 ./bin/jumpcloud-agent --conf=jcagent.conf

Launchctl will automatically try to start the service if it's loaded. If the service isn't running, make sure it's loaded
[root@mymac /opt/jc]# launchctl load /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.jumpcloud.darwin-agent.plist

To restart
[root@mymac /opt/jc]# launchctl stop com.jumpcloud.darwin-agent

To force a stop, unload the LaunchDaemon
[root@mymac ~]# launchctl unload /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.jumpcloud.darwin-agent.plist


To check or change the agent status in Windows, Run As Administrator

Via Command line:
