Starting the multi-user server or broker
Before you can run multi-user OpenEdge, you must start the multi-user server process. The server process coordinates all the database requests from all the users using a single database. Enter the following command to start the multi-user server process:
proserve db-name[parameters]
Specifies the database you want to start OpenEdge against (-db is implicit).
Specifies the startup parameters for the broker/server.
The main database server is called the broker. The broker process manages shared resources and starts servers for remote users, if necessary. For more information, see Shared-memory configurations.
