Starting Up Environments

When you are ready to re-start the batch process on an Environment that was shut down, you can use the Suenv command. When you restart an Environment, the command prompts you for the Environments you want to start up and the machines you want them to start running on.

If you accidentally restart an environment that is already active, nothing happens.

To start up an environment, follow these steps:

1. Type Suenv in a Command Shell or Terminal and press [Enter]. The command prompts you for the Environments you want to restart:

INPUT DATABASES TO BE STARTEDINPUT A SET OF DATABASE Environments

1 = Production, 2 = Tutorials, 3 = Commercials, default = []

All the Environments in your system appear in this list and each one has a number.

2. Type the numbers that correspond to each Environment you want to restart (separate each number by a space) and press [Enter].

You are prompted for the machine or machines to want to process the Environments:

INPUT MACHINE ON WHICH THESE DBENV'S ARE TO BE STARTED

INPUT A SINGLE MACHINE NAME, THE PREFIX OF A MACHINE NAME, OR all [hickey]:

3. At the prompt, select which machines should process the Environment by typing the name of a single machine, a prefix (to select a range of machines that start with the same prefix), or all to restart all the Environments on all the machines.

If you press [Enter] without specifying a machine, the command uses the machine name that appears in brackets.

If you type a prefix, a list of machines appears that contain that prefix. Type the numbers that correspond to the machines you want to restart.

For example, if you have three machines that start with "hi", you can type hi as a prefix. The system would then display a list of all the machines that start with "hi":

input a set of machines, or hit return to indicate all these machines:

1 = hickey, 2 = highlander, 3=high-definition

Either press [Enter] to select all the machines in the list or select machines by typing their corresponding numbers.

The command then ask if you want to restart Environments on more machines.

DO YOU WANT TO INPUT MORE MACHINES (y/n) [n]:

4. Decide if you want to restart Environments on more machines.
Type y to select more machines and press [Enter].
Type n to not select any more machines and press [Enter].

When you finish, a summary of the started machines appears:

here are the 3 machines you input: hickey weiner garneau

ALL MACHINES HAVE REPORTED. STARTUP COMPLETE.
