Sun Java System Instant Messaging 7.2 Administration Guide

Refreshing Component Configuration

Use the imadmin command with the refresh option to stop and restart an individual Instant Messaging component and refresh that component’s configuration.

You can refresh all the components together or a single component separately.

Whenever you change a configuration parameter in the iim.conf file, you also need to refresh the configuration.

ProcedureTo Refresh All Components

  1. At the command line, type the following:

    imadmin refresh

    This command stops the server, multiplexor, Calendar agent, cluster agent, and watchdog, terminates all end user connections, and disconnects any inbound and outbound servers configured.

    If the watchdog is running, imadmin brings the watchdog down first, and then stops the server and/or the multiplexor. Then starts the watchdog which reads the configuration file and starts the Instant Messaging server and/or multiplexor as necessary.

ProcedureTo Refresh a Single Component

  1. At the command line, type the imadmin refresh command with an argument that designates the component as follows:


    imadmin refresh server


    imadmin refresh multiplexor

    Calendar agent:

    imadmin refresh agent-calendar

    Cluster agent:

    imadmin refresh monitor


    imadmin refresh watchdog
