I have SLES 12 and I saw that every time I reboot my computer, the process rpc.gssd (which is Kerberos) starts by itself. I've tried to disable it using systemctl but there's no such a service. All I can see is a PID.

pgrep rpc.gssd

How can I dig and find which service triggers that one? Or how can I disable it permanently?



systemctl status PID

You should see something like this:

$ systemctl status 16736
● salt-master.service - The Salt Master Server
  Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/salt-master.service; disabled; vendor preset: enabled)
  Active: active (running) since Thu 2015-09-10 05:11:21 MSK; 1min 8s ago
  Main PID: 16736 (salt-master)
  CGroup: /system.slice/salt-master.service
       ├─16736 /usr/bin/python /usr/local/bin/salt-master
       ├─16744 /usr/bin/python /usr/local/bin/salt-master
       ├─16751 /usr/bin/python /usr/local/bin/salt-master

systemctl(1) says:

status [PATTERN...|PID...]]

Show terse runtime status information about one or more units, followed by most recent log data from the journal. If a PID is passed, show information about the unit the process belongs to.
