In case of EM installed in RHEL, start the EM service using “” manually. The EM service cannot start automatically if RHEL is rebooted.



To start the EM service automatically when RHEL reboots, configure the startup script. An example is provided below:

1.      Open “/etc/rc.d/rc.local” in vi editor (vi /etc/rc.d/rc.local)

2.      Add the following lines to the end of the file

       cd <EM_HOME>/bin

       ./ start 

It will look something like the following:



3.      Save and quit the vi editor


Note: <EM_HOME> is the path of EM installation directory. The next time when server reboots, EM service should restart automatically. The above example is tested with RHEL 6.4.
