Restarting the plug-in server using the Set Server Info command
When any changes such as C plug-in or Java plug-in-related changes, binary updates that take place during installation, plug-in related updates to the ar.conf file, or changes to the pluginsvr_config.xml file are done to the C plug-in or Java plug-in files, you are able to restart only the plug-in server instead of restarting the AR System server.
To restart the plug-in server using the Set Server Info command

- Enter 0 or a blank for Using private socket.
- Enter the
vercommand to verify the login information.
- Enter the
ssi(Set Server Info) command and perform the following:

- Enter 348 as the Operation number to forcefully shut down the plug-in server.
- Enter 2 for integer as the Datatype.
- Enter 0 or 1 as the Integer Value.
When the AR monitor detects that the plug-in server is down, it checks if any changes are made to the ar.cfg file. If the changes are detected, the recent ar.cfg is loaded before the stopped plug-in server is automatically restarted.
