Description:

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

 

Solution:

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

       ./EMCtrl.sh 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.
