Starting the WebSpher Liberty server

You are ready to start the WebSphere Liberty server.

Starting the server on Windows

  1. To start the server, do this step:
    1. To start the server from the command line, change to the JazzInstallDir\server directory and run the following command:
      server.startup.bat
      Important: If the server is installed in the default Program Files directory, to be able to write to this directory, you must run the startup program as an administrator.
  2. To stop the server, do this step:
    1. To stop the server from the command line, change to the JazzInstallDir\server directory and run this command:
      server.shutdown.bat
      Important: If you started the server as an administrator, you must use the administrator account to shut down the server.

After the server is started, proceed to Running the setup by using Custom setup in the setup wizard.

Starting the server on the UNIX systems

Run the startup file to start the server on the UNIX systems.
  1. To start the server, from the JazzInstallDir/server directory, run this command:
    ./server.startup

Additional notes

  • To run the start and stop scripts from any other directory, you must change all the .ini files in the JazzInstallDir/server/conf/jts/provision_profiles directory to use an absolute path. For example, change the files according to the operating system you use:
    • For Unix operating systemsOn the UNIX system, change url=file:./jts/sites/update-site to url=file:/opt/IBM/JazzTeamServer/server/conf/jts/sites/update-site
    • For Windows operating systemIn Windows, change url=file:jts/sites/update-sites to url=file:c:\program files\IBM\JazzTeamServer\server\conf\jts\sites\update-site
  • The JazzInstallDir/server/logs directory contains the server log files. If you have trouble starting the server, check the log files.
