Introduction:

Best practice for starting and stopping the SpectroSERVER process from the command line.

Need to provide System Administrators ability to start and stop SpectroSERVER without being a member of Spectrum Users Group.  What is the command line syntax? 

Instructions:

Run the "startSS.pl" and "stopSS.pl" scripts to start and stop the SpectroSERVER and Archive Manager processes from the command line.

1. Log into the SpectroSERVER system as the user that owns the Spectrum installation

2. If on Windows, open a bash shell by running "bash -login"

3. cd to the $SPECROOT/bin directory

4. Enter "./startSS.pl" to start the SpectroSERVER and Archive Manager processes and "./stopSS.pl" to stop the SpectroSERVER and Archive Manager processes. 

NOTE: On Linux and Solaris, these script should not be run as the root user. 

NOTE: For Spectrum 9.2.1.H07 and below, when starting the SpectroSERVER from the command line on a secondary or tertiary SpectroSERVER system, use "./startSS.pl --secondary" so the script does not start the Archive Manager on the secondary or tertiary SpectroSERVER system.
