The process controller needs to be running when applying a patch.

The documentation says that you need to stop the Gateway so some clients will run 'service ssg stop'.

This stops the Gateway AND the process controller.


Release : 9.2

Component : API GATEWAY


You need to stop the Gateway using the menu:

Select option 2 (Display Layer 7 Gateway configuration menu).
Select option 7 (Manage Layer 7 Gateway status).
Press Enter and then select the option to stop the Gateway.
Return to the Gateway main menu
