How to start,stop the TADDM server and check the status of the TADDM Sever?

Starting the TADDM server

To manually start the TADDM server, complete the following steps:
  1. Log in as the non-root user that was defined during the installation process.
  2. Open a command prompt window.
  1. Go to the directory where you installed the TADDM server.
  2. Use one of the following commands to run the start script:
    • For Linux®, Solaris, AIX®, and Linux on System z® operating systems:
$COLLATION_HOME/bin/control start
    • For Windows operating systems:
%COLLATION_HOME%\bin\control.bat start
Attention: With the %COLLATION_HOME%\bin\control.bat start command, the TADDM server remains running as long as the user is logged on. When the user logs out, the TADDM server stops because that user owns the process. However, the TADDM server can also be started as a service by using the %COLLATION_HOME%\bin\startServer.bat command issued by the run-as user that was specified during installation. With the %COLLATION_HOME%\bin\startServer.bat command, the TADDM server remains when the run-as user logs off the system.
  1. When starting the server on a Windows system, you might see the following timeout error message: Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion. This error occurs because the TADDM server can take longer than the allowed time to start. You can disregard this message; the startup process continues until it completes.
  2. If you installed the TADDM server with root privileges, you can manually start the TADDM server by running the following script:
7.  /etc/init.d/collation start

Stopping the TADDM server

We can manually stop the TADDM server and related discovery processes.
Steps:
  1. Log in as the non-root user that was defined during the installation process.
  2. Open a command prompt window.
Note: On a Windows® Server 2008 system with User Account Control turned on, open the command prompt window with administrator privileges. You can do this by right-clicking on the Command Prompt icon and then clicking Run as administrator.
  1. Go to the directory where you installed the TADDM server.
  2. Use one of the following commands to run the stop script:
    • For Linux®, Solaris, AIX®, and Linux on System z® operating systems:
$COLLATION_HOME/bin/control stop
    • For Windows operating systems:
%COLLATION_HOME%\bin\control.bat stop
  1. If you installed the TADDM server with root privileges, you can manually stop the TADDM server by running the following script:
6.  /etc/init.d/collation stop

Testing server status

We can use the control command to test the status of the TADDM server.
Steps:
  1. Log in as the non-root user that was defined during the installation process.
  2. Open a command prompt window.
  3. Go to the directory where you installed the TADDM server.
  4. Use one of the following commands:
    • For Linux®, Solaris, AIX®, and Linux on System z® operating systems:
$COLLATION_HOME/bin/control status
    • For Windows® operating systems:
%COLLATION_HOME%\bin\control.bat status
  1. If the TADDM server is running, the following output is displayed:
 ------------------------------------
Discover: Started
GigaSpaces: Started
DbInit: Started
Tomcat: Started
Topology: Started
DiscoverAdmin: Started
Proxy: Started
EventsCore: Started
TADDM: Running
