The kStart.sh script is used only on UNIX systems to start the PPM Server as a background process. For more details about starting the server, see Starting and Stopping the PPM Server on a Single-Server System.

Note: For PPM Servers participating in the same cluster, we recommend the following:

  • Start the servers one at a time.

  • Start each server with an explicit partition name to avoid inadvertent cluster participation.

For server clustering, the kStart.sh script accepts partition as a parameter, as follows:

sh ./kStart.sh [-name <PPM Server>][-partition <Partition_Name>]

If no value is specified, the default partition name ppm_p is used.
