Command-line utilities reference

The command-line management utilities are a set of utilities for Windows and UNIX that allow you to manage existing configurations. Like OpenEdge Management or OpenEdge Explorer, the command-line management utilities run as clients of the OpenEdge AdminServer to manage the NameServer and Unified Broker products.
Using these utilities, you can locally or remotely start, stop, manage, and monitor the status of Unified Broker execution. Unlike OpenEdge Management or OpenEdge Explorer, they do not help you create, remove, or modify properties for Unified Broker configurations.
The framework supports several different product-specific command-line configuration utilities that you can use to manage—that is, start, stop, and query activities—installed OpenEdge server products.
The following table identifies the product-specific command-line utilities available.
