Configuring the DataServer : Typical configuration for a remote client to connect to a remote DataServer : Starting a broker

Starting a broker

You can start the DataServer broker, using various methods supported by the Unified Broker Framework, including:
*OpenEdge Management/OpenEdge Explorer or mergeprop utility (for a Unified Broker)
*The command line (for a probroker)
The following example shows how to perform this step from the command line. For information about using the mergeprop utility, see OpenEdge Getting Started: Installation and Configuration. For information about using OpenEdge Management or OpenEdge Explorer, see Starting and stopping a broker process from OpenEdge Management/OpenEdge Explorer and connecting a client, and see OpenEdge Getting Started: Installation and Configuration.
To start a DataServer broker from the command:
1. Choose All Programs > OpenEdge > Proenv.
The proenv prompt appears.
2. Type the following example command line to start the DataServer broker:
_probrkr -H hostname -S brokerservice -N tcp
The values for hostname and brokerservice must be unique.
For more details about using either OpenEdge Management/OpenEdge Explorer or the command line to start a unified broker process for the DataServer, see Configuring a remote DataServer.
