Administering OpenEdge Management and OpenEdge Explorer : Using the command-line interface

Using the command-line interface

OpenEdge Management and OpenEdge Explorer provide a command-line interface that performs functions without the use of the graphical user interface.
Note: To use the command-line interface, HTTP must be enabled with localhost defined as a trusted client. See Setting Up Secure Communications for details.
Specifically, the command-line interface allows you to:
*Start, query, and stop OpenEdge Management or OpenEdge Explorer.
*Dump the contents of the OpenEdge Management or OpenEdge Explorer configuration database to a readable form (an XML file) and, in the event of a catastrophic failure, use the backup dump file to restore the database.
*Access command-line help.
You can also use the command-line interface to work with alerts in the following ways:
*Clear an alert
*Enable and disable polling
*Work with alert commands
For details about working with alerts in the command line, see OpenEdge Management: Alerts Guide and Reference.
