Starting the AdminServer
In Windows, the AdminServer starts automatically and runs as a Windows Service (AdminService for OpenEdge). From the desktop, you can perform a variety of administrative tasks. On UNIX, the command-line utility PROADSV supports a variety of tasks you can perform in support of the AdminServer.
start the AdminServer on your machine from the Windows desktop:
*Choose Start > Programs > Administrative ToolsServices. Select the AdminService for OpenEdge 11.4, and double-click. The AdminService for OpenEdge 11.4 Properties dialog box appears. Choose Start, then choose OK.
If Administrative Tools is not available, right-click from the Task Bar. Choose Properties, then select the Advanced tab. Select the Display Administrative Tools check box, then choose OK.
If you start the AdminServer, using a specific username and password, that user must have Administrator rights.
For most product installations, the AdminServer is set to Autostart.
*On UNIX, a command-line utility, PROADSV, supports OpenEdge administrative capabilities. PROADSV allows you to start up, shut down, and query the status of the AdminServer, among other tasks. See Command and Utility Reference for detailed syntax information.
