How to configure and perform a cold start of a dSeries server

 

Environment:
CA Workload Automation DE - 12.0
Answer:

 

To configure and perform a cold start of a dSeries server
Follow these steps:

1.Stop the server.

- go to the home directory where the server is installed (dseries_home)

- On Windows, open the following file in a text editor:

dseries_home\conf\runonce.properties.bak

- On UNIX, open the following file in a text editor:
dseries_home/conf/runonce.properties.bak

2.Update the start.type and start.type.level parameters to the following:

start.type=COLD

start.type.level=value

Example: start.type.level=1

The 'value' is a level

(-1) Specifies that the server starts with a normal cold start, but scheduled Events that were not yet processed at the time of shutdown are rescheduled (a SCHEDULEALLEVENTS request). Events that require a manual trigger are not preserved.

(0) Specifies that the server starts with a normal cold start and the generation count for all Applications is set to 0 (zero).

(1) Specifies a normal cold start.

(2) Specifies that the server starts with a cold start, but all scheduled Events are preserved.
Events that were not yet processed at the time of shutdown continue to trigger after the server starts.
Events that require a manual trigger are also preserved.

(-1) Specifies that the server starts with a normal cold start, but scheduled Events that were not yet
processed at the time of shutdown are rescheduled (a SCHEDULEALLEVENTS request).
Events that require a manual trigger are not preserved.
(-2) Specifies the cold start level. Options are the following:
Specifies that the server starts with a cold start, but active workload is preserved.
Workload that was running at the time of shutdown continues to run after the server starts.

Default: 0

3.Save the file runonce.properties.bak to runonce.properties and close the file

4 .Start the server.

The server is cold-started.

Additional Information:

 

You rarely need to perform a cold start. However, if required, you can perform a cold start
on the server in a single server (stand-alone)
configuration or in a CA WA High Availability configuration.

Important! When you perform a normal cold start, the server deletes all active workload and
associated states, and you lose all active processing data.
