Issue/Introduction

Description:

SCM Admin just need to start Broker [bkrd] process by executing $CA_SCM_HOME/bin/bkrd - that will start other necessary processes.

Solution:

When $CA_SCM_HOME/bin/bkrd is executed, it first will try to connect with an rtserver process if it already exists. If rtserver is not running, then it will start the rtserver process.
Once it is connected to the rtserver, it will then start a number of hserver processes based on the "-minserver" setting in $CA_SCM_HOME/HBroker.arg.

SCM Admin can also monitor those processes on regular basis as well as to stop gracefully.

NOTE:

  1. Only one bkrd process is allowed to start in standard installation setup. If bkrd process is already started the second bkrd will not start [will give "Error: Initialization fails"] and should not cause any problem.
  2. $CA_SCM_HOME is relevant for SCM R12. Use $HARVESTHOME for R7.1.
  3. For windows environment use %CA_SCM_HOME% and %HARVESTHOME% as applicable.
