Using the ASBMAN utility
The ASBMAN utility runs on both in Windows and on UNIX. It allows you to invoke the following management functions on a local or remote AppServer instance:
*Start an AppServer.
*Check and manage the operational status of the AppServer. Management options allow you to reduce (trim) and increase (add) the number of running AppServer agents for this AppServer. For more information on the effects of these options, see Specifying the server pool parameters.
*Stop the AppServer.
Unlike OpenEdge Management or OpenEdge Explorer, the ASBMAN utility has no mechanism for viewing log files or deleting configured AppServer instances. If you want to set the AppServer log file or delete the AppServer instance, you must do it manually using operating system commands. To delete the AppServer, you must remove the entry for this AppServer instance in the file or use OpenEdge Management or OpenEdge Explorer. For more information on managing log files, see OpenEdge Getting Started: Installation and Configuration. For more information on accessing the file, see Editing the properties file.
Note: Before you can delete an AppServer instance, you must stop the AppServer.
This is the syntax to invoke the ASBMAN utility:
