Starting and Stopping the PPM Server on UNIX

To start the server on UNIX.

Caution: If your PPM instance includes multiple nodes in a cluster configuration, you must start these nodes one at a time. Make sure that you wait until each node is fully started before you start the next node.

  1. Change to the <PPM_Home>/bin directory.

  2. Run the kStart.sh script, as follows: sh ./kStart.sh

For more information about kStart.sh, see kStart.sh. For information about how to start servers in a cluster, see Starting and Stopping the PPM Server on a Single-Server System.

To stop the server on UNIX.

Note: If the REMOTE_ADMIN_REQUIRE_AUTH parameter is set to true, users running kStop.sh to shut down the PPM Server must supply a valid PPM user name and password. If the parameter is set to false, any user with access to the kStop.sh script can shut down the server. For information about the REMOTE_ADMIN_REQUIRE_AUTH parameter, see REMOTE_ADMIN_REQUIRE_AUTH.

  1. Navigate to the <PPM_Home>/bin directory.

  2. Run the kStop.sh script as follows.

    sh ./kStop.sh -now -user <User_Name>

    Make sure that you type a valid user name that has Administrator privileges.
