How To: Modify the linux_bootscript so ArcIMS will start on boot

Summary

The linux_bootscript file needs to be modified to allow ArcIMS to start automatically upon bootup.

Procedure

  1. Browse to the <ArcIMS_installation_directory>/Xenv directory and open linux_bootscript in a text editor.
  2. Make the following edits:

    Original:
    Code:
    su - <arcims_account> -c "cd \$AIMSHOME/Xenv; ./aimsappsrvr start \&"
    sleep 5
    su - <arcims_account> -c "cd \$AIMSHOME/Xenv; ./aimsmonitor start \&"
    sleep 5
    su - <arcims_account> -c "cd \$AIMSHOME/Xenv; ./aimstasker start \&"
    sleep 5

    Modified:
    Code:
    su - <arcims_account> -c "cd \$AIMSHOME/Xenv; ./aimsappsrvr start &"
    sleep 5
    su - <arcims_account> -c "cd \$AIMSHOME/Xenv; ./aimsmonitor start &"
    sleep 5
    su - <arcims_account> -c "cd \$AIMSHOME/Xenv; ./aimstasker start &"
    sleep 5


    Note:
    The only change being made is removing the "\" from "\&" making it simply "&" in each.

  3. Save and close linux_bootscript file.
  4. Reboot the machine.

    Note:
    ArcIMS should be running under the arcims_account holder specified in the script.
