This article is relevant if you like to Start/Stop Information Platform services on Linux box.

This article is about operating SAP Data Services on LINUX. This article is relevant/more/ helpful for those who are first timer on LINUX.

This article is written using SAP Services XI 4.1 SP02.

Pls note that this is different from the Start/Stop Data Services Job Server on Linux, which is one of the component of Data Services.

For your reference : – How to Start/Stop Data services Server on LINUX

        This article covers the step by step instructions(with screens wherever its possible) to Start/Stop IPS (information Platform Services) on Linux using Linux Shell Prompt.

Pls note that start/stop IPS services/servers can be done via central Management Console as well. This article does not cover that part of it.

It is always useful to know linux commands to start/stop SIA(server intelligence agent), because restart of all the servers can be dobe graphically but stopping all the servers and starting them after a while can not be achieved graphically means using CMC.

Following are the commands that needs to be performed at LINUX command prompt.

-$ cd /usr/sap/<SID>/businessobjects/sap_bobj

-$ ./ccm.sh -cms servername.unix.domain.com:6400 -username Administrator -password password -authentication secEnterprise

-$ ./ccm.sh -start all

-$ ./ccm.sh -cms servername.unix.domain.com:6400 -username Administrator -password password -authentication secEnterprise -display

Pls see below for step by step instructions to start/stop IPS Servers.

Step 1:- Login Via Putty,

Input :- Provide hostname

Hit Open.

Type the below command to navigate to the IPS directory where BOE/IPS is installed.

-$ cd /usr/sap/<SID>/businessobjects/sap_bobj

Now, it is possible that you do not have proper privileges to perform below action so pls ensure that you logged in via some sudo access which has authorization to perform below command, generally it is sapds<SID>. it may be different as well.

-$ ./ccm.sh -display -cms Servername.unix.domain.com:6400

Creating session manager…

Logging onto CMS…

err: Error:  Could not log on to CMS (STU00152)

err: Error description: The system Servername.unix.domain.com can be contacted, but there is no Central Management Server running at port 6400.

So logged in with right user and make sure that it has sudo assigned to to it.

Below command will help you to open an authenticated session so that you can perform your activities.

Here we are interested to start all the server components of IPS

-$ ./ccm.sh -cms servername.unix.domain.com:6400 -username Administrator -password password -authentication secEnterprise
-$ ./ccm.sh -start all
Starting all servers…

Starting servername3…

After executing above command you can make sure that all the components are running by using below command. there you need to provide one more parameter to display the components running under that instance (-display)

$ ./ccm.sh -cms servername.unix.marksandspencercate.com:6400 -username Administrator -password password -authentication secEnterprise -display

In the above output you see that some of the servers are still stopped. This is because I have presented the example of Pre-prod environment where two machines are part of a cluster/Server group because of high availability and performance reasons.

As I have executed the command on one node only, that’s why servers from other node are seeing as “Stopped”. I will do the similar exercise on other node too.

Now. I will login into CMC and see the server status.

As All servers were stopped so I could not logged into CMC and check the severs. Now both the nodes are up and I am able to logged into the CMC.

CMC >> HOME >> Organize >> Servers

Check all the other status as well, to make sure that there is nothing disabled and stopped.

So lets check the Stopped instances/servers. Click on “Stopped” under “Server Status”

DS_IPS_SERVER_START_STOP_02.JPG

Lets check the “others” under “Server Status”

Now we are confident and say confirm that all the servers are up and running.

Next step is to login to Data Services Designer and check that you are able to login without any difficulty.

    Sandeep,

    Nice write-up. I saw this while I was searching for how to change the password in the app for the IPS.

    We changed the pwd in the database for the IPS and I need to change it in the app. If I re-start the app I’m afraid I’ll get password errors.

    Can you help?

    Mike

    Hi Sandeep

    Good doc,

    We have a similar kind of setup (IPS+DS) on Clustered ENV on Linux. Can you share me any docs which would help in achieving Active – Active, HA for DS.

    I have installed IPS and clustered them, need some inputs on DS part.

    Thanks

    Mahesh.
