FAQ: how to start J2EE engine 6.20 as an NT service!


How to configure a SAP J2EE Engine node to start in <b>background mode?


You can use SAP J2EE Engine Config Tool for configuring a cluster node as a Windows service or UNIX daemon. The procedure is thoroughly described in Administration Manual -> Administration Tools -> ConfigTool -> SAP J2EE Engine 6.20 as an NT/2000 Service or a Unix Daemon .

<b><b>Windows NT/2000</b></b>

Start Service.exe , which is in the configtool subdirectory of SAP J2EE Engine 6.20 installation directory.

To add the SAP J2EE Engine 6.20 node to the Windows services, start service.exe as follows:

Service.exe –install – the service(s) is (are) registered as NT/2000 Service(s). For each specified cluster node, a separate service is generated. All services have startup mode automatic . To start the service(s), open the Control Panel ->Services folder. Find the service in the list of available services (for example: SAP J2EE Server 1 , SAP J2EE Dispatcher 1 , SAP J2EE Server 2 , and so on). Select it, and choose “Start” on the right-hand side. No “Startup Parameters” are needed for the service to run. The system starts the particular SAP J2EE Engine 6.20 node in background mode. It can be used and administered as usual. The only difference is that the server does not run in a console window.

Note: Service.exe cannot be run within a 4NT™ DOS console. Start the service in another DOS console window.

    Btw, is the startup framework released officially ?

    Helps a lot when you need to startup a cluster of machines (or many environments at the same time)
