Setting the Server Mode

PPM supports the following server modes:

  • NORMAL. In NORMAL mode, all enabled users can log on, and all services are available, subject to restrictions set in server.conf parameters.

  • RESTRICTED. In RESTRICTED mode, the server enables only users with Administrator access granted to log on. The server cannot run scheduled executions, notifications, or the concurrent request manager while in this mode.

    Before you can install an Deployment Management Extension, you must set the server to RESTRICTED mode.

  • DISDABLED. DISABLED mode prevents server startup. A server enters disabled mode only after a PPM upgrade exits before the upgrade is completed.

Setting the Server Mode with setServerMode.sh

The setServerMode.sh script, located in the <PPM_Home>/bin directory, sets the server mode in situations where you want to obtain exclusive access to a running server.

To set the server mode using the setServerMode.sh script:

  1. From the command line, change to the <PPM_Home>/bin directory, and run the setServerMode.sh script.

    The Run dialog box opens.

  2. In the Open field, type the following:

    sh ./setServerMode.sh <Mode_Name>

    where <Mode_Name> represents the NORMAL,RESTRICTED, or DISABLED server mode.

    For example, to set the server to restricted mode, in the Open field, type:

    sh ./setServerMode.sh RESTRICTED

    For more information about the setServerMode.sh script, see Setting the Server Mode. For more information about the kConfig.sh script, see kConfig.sh.

Setting the Server Mode Using kConfig

To set the server mode using the kConfig.sh script:

  1. Run sh ./kConfig.sh (located in the <PPM_Home>/bin directory).

  2. Select Set Server Mode.

  3. In the list, select Restricted Mode.

  4. Click Finish.

  5. Run the kUpdateHtml.sh script.
