3.7. Controlling SGD

To control SGD from the command line, use the tarantella start, tarantella stop, and tarantella restart commands.

You control an SGD server and the SGD web server with the following commands:

Subcommands for the tarantella start, tarantella stop, and tarantella restart commands enable you to control individual components of SGD, as follows:

See the Oracle Secure Global Desktop Administration Guide for Release 4.7 for more information about the available subcommands and options for the tarantella stop, tarantella start, and tarantella restart commands.

3.7.1. Controlling the SGD Enhancement Module

This section describes how you control the SGD Enhancement Module.

3.7.1.1. Controlling the SGD Enhancement Module for Microsoft Windows

When you install the SGD Enhancement Module for Microsoft Windows, the load balancing service starts immediately. The load balancing service also starts automatically whenever the Windows host is rebooted.

How to Manually Control the Load Balancing Service

Use the following procedure to manually stop and start the load balancing service on a Windows host.

  1. Log in to the Windows host as a user with administrative privileges.

  2. In the Windows Control Panel, click Administrative Tools.

  3. Click Computer Management.

  4. In the tree, expand Services and Applications.

  5. Click Services.

  6. Double-click the Tarantella Load Balancing Service.

  7. Click Stop or Start to stop or start the service.

3.7.1.2. Controlling the SGD Enhancement Module for UNIX and Linux Platforms

When you install the SGD Enhancement Module for UNIX and Linux Platforms, the load balancing and UNIX audio processes start immediately. The client drive mapping processes have to be started manually because extra configuration is required.

Whenever the host is rebooted, all the Enhancement Module processes are started automatically.

On UNIX and Linux platforms, you can control the Enhancement Module processes manually with the tem command. The tem command is a script installed in the install-dir/bin directory. By default, install-dir is /opt/tta_tem. As this script is not on the standard PATH, you must use the full path each time you run the command, or change to /opt/tta_tem/bin before running the command. Alternatively, do the following:

  • Add /opt/tta_tem/bin to the PATH, for example:

    PATH=$PATH:/opt/tta_tem/bin; export PATH

  • Create an alias, for example:

    alias em=/opt/tta_tem/bin/tem

You control the Enhancement Module processes manually by running the following commands as superuser (root):

  • tem start – Starts the load balancing processes

  • tem stop – Stops the load balancing processes

  • tem startcdm – Starts the CDM processes

  • tem stopcdm – Stops the CDM processes

  • tem startaudio – Starts the UNIX platform audio processes

  • tem stopaudio – Stops the UNIX platform audio processes

Use the tem status command to show the status of the various modules in the Enhancement Module.
