Startup and Shutdown Procedures : Starting Results with one database
 
Starting Results with one database
This section describes how to start Results from your operating system using a single database in single‑user and in multi‑user mode. Note the following points:
*When you start Results with a database in single‑user mode, no one else can access the database you are using.
*When you start Results with a database in multi‑user mode, more than one user can access the same database. To start a database in multi‑user mode, you must first start a server for the database, as described in the “Starting a server for the database” section. Type the appropriate multi‑user startup command at your operating system prompt.
Single-user mode
To start Results from your operating system, type the appropriate command at your operating system prompt, where dbname is the name of your database. This section presents how to start Results in a single-user mode.
To start Results in single-user mode, enter this command:
 
results dbname
Multi-user mode
To start Results from your operating system, type the appropriate command at your operating system prompt, where dbname is the name of your database. This section presents how to start Results in a multi-user mode.
To start Results in multi-user mode, enter this command:
 
mresults dbname
If you have not performed an initial build on this database, the system displays a message that there is no .qc file for the database you specified. In that case, you need to perform an initial build. For information about the initial build process, see the “Description of the initial build” section.
Note: You should not get an initial build prompt if someone has already installed the Results package for you. If you do, see your database administrator.
Be sure to shut down the server process when you are done and ready to turn off the computer. See the section “Shutting down a server for the database” section for more information.
