PROSHUT command

PROSHUT provides an interface to shut down an OpenEdge database server, DataServer broker, and individual OpenEdge user processes. Best practices suggest that before you shut down the server, have all application users quit their OpenEdge sessions. If necessary, you can disconnect users by using the PROSHUT command's Disconnect a User or Unconditional Shutdown parameters.


Operating System

proshut {db-name| -Gw }[ -S service-name]...


Specify the name of the schema holder to shut down its server, if it was started in multi-user mode.
For DataServers, specifies that the DataServer broker is to be shut down.
-S service-name
Specifies the database server or broker process. You must specify the service name if you issue the shutdown command from a machine other than the host.
