Starting and Stopping the GUI Server

To Start the LifeKeeper GUI Server

If the LifeKeeper GUI Server is not running, type the following command as root:

/opt/LifeKeeper/bin/lkGUIserver start

This command starts all LifeKeeper GUI Server daemon processes on the server being administered if they are not currently running. A message similar to the following is displayed.

# Installing GUI Log
# LK GUI Server Startup at:
# Mon May 8 14:14:46 EDT 2006
# Setting up inittab entries
# LifeKeeper GUI Server Startup completed at:
# Mon May 8 14:14:46 EDT 2006

Once the LifeKeeper GUI Server is started, all subsequent starts of LifeKeeper will automatically start the LifeKeeper GUI Server processes.

Troubleshooting

The LifeKeeper GUI uses Ports 81 and 82 on each server for its administration web server and Java remote object registry, respectively. If another application is using the same ports, the LifeKeeper GUI will not function properly. These values may be changed by editing the following entries in the LifeKeeper default file /etc/default/LifeKeeper.

GUI_WEB_PORT=81 GUI_RMI_PORT=82

Note: These port values are initialized in the GUI server at start time. If you alter them, you will need to stop and restart the GUI server. These values must be the same across all clusters to which you connect.

To Stop the LifeKeeper GUI Server

If the LifeKeeper GUI Server is running, type the following command as root:

/opt/LifeKeeper/bin/lkGUIserver stop

This command halts all LifeKeeper GUI Server daemon processes on the server being administered if they are currently running. The following messages are displayed.

# LifeKeeper GUI Server Shutdown at:
# Fri May 19 15:37:27 EDT 2006
# Removing inittab entries
# LifeKeeper GUI Server Shutdown Completed at:
# Fri May 19 15:37:28 EDT 2006
