Using the Linux Connctrl Script

If you prefer to manually start the Connections servers under linux by far the easiest way is to use the connctrl script (see the resource section for the link).

Copy the connctrl script to the /etc directory and edit the variables

#######################################################
# Variables                                           #
#######################################################
# Please amend these to match your local environment #
#######################################################
WSDM=/opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/Dmgr01/bin   # WebSphere Deployment Manager path
WAS=/opt/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/AppSrv01/bin  # WebSphere Application Server path
NRU=wasadmin      # NonRootUser that owns WebSphere instance if not 'root'
N=ConnCtrl
# Connections Servers #
# This is whatever you called the Connections server instances #
CS=IC45_server1     #this is for a single JVM only 
CS1=pcf_server1 #If multiple Connections servers list them here
CS2=infra_server1   #If multiple Connections servers list them here
CS3=apps_server1    #If multiple Connections servers list them here
CS4=fw_server1      #If multiple Connections servers list them here

Once the variables have been changed save the file

The script is then called from /etc

/etc/connctrl.sh

Usage: ConnCtrl {start|stop} {0|3|4} {nru} 
0=just 1 IC server, 3=3 IC servers & 4=4IC servers 
nru = if you are using a user other than root

i.e /etc/connctrl.sh stop 4 wasadmin or /etc/connctrl start 0

The script will start and stop the servers in a similar way to the windows batch files, each server in turn is stopped (or started).
