OpenEdge Application Server Architecture : Unified Broker framework : AdminServer


An AdminServer is installed on every system where you install an OpenEdge server product that includes the OpenEdge RDBMS, OpenEdge DataServer, OpenEdge Adapter for SonicMQ BrokerConnect, AppServer, AppServer Internet Adapter, Web Services Adapter, NameServer, or WebSpeed Transaction Server. The AdminServer must be running in order to use OpenEdge Management or OpenEdge Explorer, or the command-line configuration utilities. These tools contact the AdminServer to perform the actual configuration of your OpenEdge server products.
In Windows systems, the AdminServer starts automatically and runs as a Windows service (AdminService for OpenEdge). For UNIX-based systems, a command-line utility (PROADSV) is used to start and stop the AdminServer.
Note: For the complete syntax of the PROADSV utility, see the chapter on setting up your environment in OpenEdge Getting Started: Installation and Configuration.
