You cannot start a broker using the Administration Console. Instead, use one of the following methods, depending on how Message Queue was installed:
On IPS package-based installations, enter the command
On Solaris SVR4 package-based installations, enter the command
On Linux RPM package-based installations, enter the command
If you used the Windows Start menu, the command window will appear, indicating that the broker is ready by displaying lines like the following:
Loading persistent data... Broker “imqbroker@stan:7676 ready.
Reactivate the Administration Console window. You are now ready to add the broker to the Console and connect to it. You do not have to start the broker before adding a reference to it in the Administration Console, but you must start it before you can connect to it.
