Running the Server

Describes how to run server manually and automatically.

You can run the server:

Both of these approaches make use of the configuration file local.properties, which contains parameters needed to start the server. This file is required if you start the server manually; it is optional if you start the server as a service. Because of this, it is considered a best practice to configure options in the local.properties file, as described in the following section.

 
Important: If you are using the Atlas Planning and Tracking Suite, before you start the server, the Connect.xml file must be checked in to the project located in the following folder:<filepath>/Connect. If this folder does not exist, you must create it and check in the Connect.xml file in order to start the server or UI.

Configure local.properties

To configure local properties:

  1. In the root directory where you installed , open local.properties.sample.
  2. Edit the following values:
    user_directory= [The slashes in this path must be forward (/). In addition, 
                     the service account under which you run the
                 server must have rights to create 
                     files in the directory you specify here.]
    
  3. Save local.properties.sample as local.properties.

Running the Server Manually

To run the server manually, run start-connect.bat.

This file is in the root directory where you installed . It is also available as a desktop icon called Start and through your Start menu, depending upon options you chose during installation.

If the local.properties file is inaccessible, the server will not start.

Configuring ConnectService.bat

If you are running the server manually, you can skip this section. However, if you are running the server as a service, you must first configure the ConnectService.bat file as described here.

  1. In the root directory where you installed , open ConnectService.bat.
  2. Edit the following line by removing the REM statement and changing the value as appropriate for your environment:
    SERVICE_LOG= [the user data directory for ] 
    		  

Running the Server as a Service

To run the server as a service:

  1. Configure ConnectService.bat as described in the previous section.
  2. Optionally, configure the local.properties as described earlier.
  3. In the root directory where you installed , run the ConnectService.bat file. This creates the service named EnterpriseSyncConnect. The service startup type is set to Automatic so that it starts each time the machine is re-booted.
  4. To start the server as a service, open the Windows Services dialog and locate the EnterpriseSyncConnect service.
  5. Right-click the EnterpriseSyncConnect service and choose Start.

If you want to remove the service, run uninstall-service.bat, located in the root directory where you installed .

step 3: In the root directory where you installed , run the encrypt.bat to encrypt the password specified by the ST_PASSWORD= parameter in the file.
