Starting Logical Hosts

The procedures in this section assume you have installed two or more Logical Hosts, and that you have replaced the additional files as listed under the following sections:

Applying Deployment Profiles to Logical Host

At this point, apply all Deployment Profiles to the appropriate Environment’s Logical Host. Return to previous procedures in this chapter to troubleshoot any possible problems appropriately until all Deployment Profiles apply with no errors.

Running Logical Host

The directory for the Logical Host that runs the Atlanta Company is called lhAtlanta (associated with envAtlanta), and the directory for the Logical Host that runs the Berlin Company is called lhBerlin (associated with envBerlin).

ProcedureTo run the current Logical Host for the first time

  1. Access a command prompt and change directories to the run executable file’s location (for example, beginning with lhAtlanta) of the Logical Host:

    cd lhAtlanta\bootstrap\bin
  2. Start the run script using the appropriate parameters, for example:

    bootstrap- r http://<myMachine:12345>/<myRepository>- i <myID>
        -p <myPassword>- e envAtlanta- l lhAtlanta -f


    • For the -r (Repository) parameter), supply the correct URL with the Repository name.

    • For the -i and -p (user ID and password) parameters, supply the appropriate values.

    • For -e (Environment name) parameter, use envAtlanta

    • For -l (Logical Host name) parameters, use lhAtlanta

    • You need not supply the -f (force) flag if all configuration changes have already been applied, or if this is the first time that the run script has been executed.

    After a brief time, the Logical Host starts running, and all activated Projects that reference envAtlanta are automatically applied to it.

  3. Repeat steps Step 1 and Step 2 on the envBerlin Logical Host, referencing the same Repository but pointing it at lhBerlin, for example:

    cd lhBerlin\bootstrap\bin
    bootstrap- r http://<myMachine:12345>/<myRepository>- i <myID>
        -p <myPassword>- e envBerlin- l lhBerlin -f

ProcedureTo run the Logical Host at later times

  1. Enter the command bootstrap.

Applying Changes Without Shutting Down Logical Host

This procedure is optional. You only need to use it if changes are made to parameters in an Environment while a Logical Host is running, for example, adding or modifying keystores for an eXchange service.

Use these steps to apply the changes without having to shut down and rerun the Logical Host. This procedure is the equivalent of shutting down the Logical Host and running it again using the -f flag.

ProcedureTo apply Environment changes when a Logical Host is running

  1. In Enterprise Designer’s Environment Explorer, open the Environment where the changes have occurred.

  2. Right-click the Logical Host that is running and, on the context menu, click Apply.

  3. Repeat the previous step, as needed, for other Logical Hosts in the same Environment.

    In the Logical Host, a brief shutdown and restart occur, and the changes are applied to the running Logical Host.
