Starting and Stopping an Agent Relay

If you are using an agent relay and you install the agent relay as a service, the agent relay installer installs the agent relay service but does not start the service. It is set to manual start by default.

Start the agent relay service on your agent relay machine according to the following procedure.

Note: If you are using an agent relay, you must start it before starting any agents that will communicate through it.

To stop or start an agent relay service:

  • In Windows, use Administrative Tools > Services to start or stop the agent relay of the name you gave it during the installation. The default name is agentrelay.
  • On UNIX/Linux, to start or stop the agent relay, execute the associated command script as follows:
  1. Navigate to the agent_relay_installation/bin directory. For example: /opt/MicroFocus/agentrelay/bin
  2. Run agentrelay start to start the server in a new shell. Run agentrelay stop to stop it.
