PASMAN

PASMAN is a command-line utility that always invokes TCMAN from the core PAS for OpenEdge installation(OpenEdge-Install-Dir/servers/pasoe/bin). You can apply TCMAN actions to an instance by using the -I instance_name option with PASMAN.
The script for PASMAN is located in OpenEdge-Install-Dir/bin which is usually included in your PATH environment variable.
PASMAN takes the same options and actions as TCMAN. However, you must specify an instance name (using -I instance_name) whenever an action applies to a specific instance.

Syntax

pasman action  [general_options] [action_options ]

Parameters

action
Specify which TCMAN action to invoke. See the TCMAN Reference for information on actions.
general_options
Specify one or more of the TCMAN common options that can apply to most actions.
The output of tcman.sh help action includes a list of the general options that are applicable to the specified action.
When an action affects a specific instance, you must explicity reference the instance using the -I instance_name general option with PASMAN. If you do not specify an instance name, the action applies to the core server in $CATALINA_HOME. The actions where you can use -I with PASMAN to specify a particular instance are:
Action
Description
Clean up or archive log files.
Display and manage configurations
Deploy a Web application
Stop a Web application
Start a Web application
Display runtime environment information

Other actions only apply to the core PAS for OpenEdge installed in OpenEdge-Install-Dir/servers/pasoe/bin and not to instances. These core server actions, where -I instance_name should not be used with PASMAN, are:

Description
