Use the kStop.sh script to stop the PPM Server. This script requires some arguments. You can use the -now flag to quickly stop the server, or use the -delay <#minutes> flag to stop it after a delay of a specified number of minutes.

Note: If you are using the -delay option, you can use the kCancelStop.sh script to cancel the stop request.

Using the -delay option automatically issues a message to advise all connected PPM users that the server will stop after the specified delay. This script requires authentication if the server parameter REMOTE_ADMIN_REQUIRE_AUTH is set to true. In this case, you must also specify the flag -user <Username>.

For more information on available flags, run kStop.sh without any options. For information about how to stop the server, see Starting and Stopping the PPM Server on a Single-Server System.
