Starting and stopping product components and services

Sometimes you might need to start or stop any of the BMC Atrium Orchestrator platform components and services. The following procedures detail how to start and stop services:

In these instructions, AO_HOME represents the installation directory for the BMC  Atrium Orchestrator component, such as the CDP, HA-CDP, AP, LAP, OCP, repository, or dashboards.

 

If BMC Atrium Orchestrator (BAO) and Atrium Single Sign-On (SSO) are installed on the same server, ensure that the Atrium SSO service is running before starting BAO. For more information, see CDP fails to start.

Starting and stopping BMC Atrium Single Sign-On

Use these instructions to start and stop BMC Atrium Single Sign-On.

Starting BMC Atrium SSO

BMC Atrium Single Sign-On must be running for you to use Grid Manager and the repository. You can set BMC Atrium Single Sign-On to start automatically after installation finishes, or you can use the procedure appropriate for the operating system where BMC Atrium Single Sign-On is installed to start it.

To start BMC Atrium Single Sign-On on a Windows computer

  1. Select Settings > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services to open the Services window.
  2. Right-click the BMC Atrium SSO Tomcat service and select Start.

To start BMC Atrium Single Sign-On on a Linux or UNIX computer

  1. Open a terminal on the computer.
  2. Change to the SSO_Home/bin directory for the BMC Atrium Single Sign-On installation.
  3. Type SSO_HOME/bin/startup-tomcat.sh 
    Tomcat displays messages indicating that BMC Atrium Single Sign-On started.

Tips

If BMC Atrium Single Sign-On does not start properly, consider the following tips:

  • If you see a message saying that BMC Atrium Single Sign-On is not found, ensure that you are in the correct directory.
  • Check the grid.log file for a port conflict. If there is a port conflict, edit the AO_Home/tomcat/conf/server.xml file to change the port to an available port. Then try to restart the service.

Stopping BMC Atrium Single Sign-On

Although BMC Atrium Single Sign-On must be running for you to use Grid Manager and the repository, you might need to stop the processes. You can use the procedure appropriate for the operating system where BMC Atrium Single Sign-On is installed to stop BMC Atrium Single Sign-On processes.

  3. Type sh AO_HOME/bin/server.sh start
    Tomcat displays messages indicating that the server started.

    Tips

    If the CDP, AP, or LAP does not start properly, consider the following tips:

    • If you see a message saying that the server is not found, ensure that you are in the correct directory.
    • Check the grid.log file for a port conflict. If there is a port conflict, edit the AO_Home/tomcat/conf/server.xml file to change the port to an available port. Then try to restart the service.

Stopping the CDP, AP, or LAP

Although the CDP must be running for you to use Grid Manager, you might need to stop the processes. You can use the procedure appropriate for the operating system where the CDP is installed to stop the CDP processes. You use the same approach to start APs and LAPs.

    We have an BAO 7.8.01 instance running on a Linux machine.

    I see a significative difference, when the SSO is installed on a Windows machine, the tomcat Service is deployed with Start -> Automatic. Meaning that the service is allways going to start after a restart of the machine.

    This is not happening in the Linux distribution:

    • Is there any reason because of this difference between both Operative Systems?
    • Could it be part of the documentation (configuration, post-installation activities) the description on how to deploy this auto-start/stop scripts?

      Thank you for your questions.

      In terms of the first question, there is a KB article related to this issue. The article ID is 000056036. You can access it from the BMC Support Knowledge Base using your Support login credentials. I hope that this helps.

      With respect to the second request, I've created an enhancement request, DRAUM 21284 related to the request for additional instructions on how deploy auto-start/stop scripts. I will update the documentation when I have approved instructions.
