Description:

Is there a Unix command that we can issue on the EEM Linux server to show EEM is available/running?

Is there a Windows command that we can issue on the EEM Linux server to show EEM is available/running?

Solution:

EEM relies on the igateway to run itself. If the igateway is not up and running, eem cannot be up. It uses that binary to run.

EEM also uses CA Directory as well. If this is not up, EEM will also not function.

As to check the status from a command line, there is no such command that checks this.

However, you can do the following:

  1. Check to see if the following services are running:

    igateway and dxserver in unix: Use the commands ps -ef | grep 'gateway' or ps -ef | grep 'dxserver'

    CA Directory and CA Gateway services in windows: run services.msc and check through for the CA Directory and Gateway services are started

  2. Use netstat to check to see if there is a listener on the EEM Server:

    in unix: netstat -an | grep '5250'

    in windows: netstat -an | findstr 5250

  3. Telnet to the EEM server on Port 5250. If you get a PID, EEM is running.

    Example: telnet eemserver.your.com 5250

  4. Login into the EEM server via the web: https://youreemserver.com:5250/spin/eiam
