  • Starting and Stopping the AppServers
    The AppServer instance configured in the example on here can be administered using the asbman command (located in DLC\bin), which can be invoked from the command line of a DOS window. The DLC\bin directory must be in your PATH environment variable in order to run these commands; alternatively, you can change directories to the DLC\bin directory to run them. On UNIX, these commands are located in the DLC/bin directory, and the user must have Progress administrative privileges to execute them.
    Note: Click Start|Programs| Command Prompt to launch a DOS window.
    Important: Make sure that all databases to be connected to the AppServer are running before you start the AppServer.
    The command usage is as follows:
    To start an AppServer instance:
    asbman -i appServerInstanceName -start
    To stop an AppServer instance:
    asbman -i appServerInstanceName -stop
    To check the status of an AppServer instance:
    asbman -i appServerInstanceName -query
    Example: To start the agents for the AppServer name used in the sample ubroker.properties file shown on here, type the command:
    asbman -i mt-mrppro -start
    After starting an AppServer, use the –query option to check its status, and do not proceed until all of the AppServers are in the available state.
    For troubleshooting, verify that the databases that the AppServer connects to are running. Do this by running a Progress client session and trying to connect to the same database servers.
    Note: For the AppServer instance to run properly, the Progress Name Server must be running. In turn, for the Name Server to run properly, the Progress Admin Server must be running. Although the Name Server and Admin Server are usually configured by default to start up automatically at boot time, it may be necessary to administer them manually. On Windows, these commands are located in the DLC\bin directory, and should be run from a DOS window. On UNIX, these commands are located in the DLC/bin directory, and the user must have Progress administrative privileges to execute them.
    To start, stop, or query the Progress Admin Server, use the appropriate command:
    proadsv -start
    proadsv -stop
    proadsv -query
    Note: In a Windows environment, it is recommended that you use Start|Settings|Control Panel|Services to start and stop the Admin Server.
    The Progress Name Server will be started automatically during the successful startup of the Admin Server. If it is necessary to start, stop, or query the Progress Name Server (assuming the default NS1 name is used for the Name Server), use the following commands:
    nsman -i NS1 -start
    nsman -i NS1 -stop
    nsman -i NS1 -query
