Future DICE Platform Notes

This page is where we collect together ideas for changes we would like to make in a future major platform update.

Starting and Stopping Services

Currently some services are started at boot time (and stopped) via the associated LCFG component rather than by using the systemd service config. The use of systemctl to start and stop services out-of-band during the boot process is liable to cause conflicts with the way systemd orders the boot sequence which could result in machines locking up. We've already seen this problem in relation to the exam lockdown scripts. At the next platform upgrade we should require the complete separation of boot-time start/stop.

PAM Stack Documentation

When configuring the PAM stack for the future platform we should thoroughly document how it all works.
