Description:

Yes, you can. With R12 Perl scripts have been added in the bin directory for ease of service desk administration.

Please note this procedure should only be used in a Lab environment for the purposes of testing changes to customizations or configuration files.
This is not supported in a production environment.

With pdm_bounce.pl we can bounce the following:

  1. web engine.

  2. domsrvr.

  3. spell server.

  4. run a pdm_d_refresh on daemons.

    Use the pdm_perl script to initiate pdm_bounce.pl.
