Stopping secondary servers on AIX

When you stop a RICOH ProcessDirector secondary server running on AIX, you can stop the server with or without waiting for job-processing steps to complete.

To stop a secondary server on an AIX system:

  1. Log in to the AIX system as the RICOH ProcessDirector system user (aiw1 is the default).
  2. Access the command line.
  3. Optional: To minimize the impact of shutting down the system on processes that are currently running, disable the input devices associated with the server.
  4. Enter one of these commands:
    • To stop the secondary server immediately without waiting for steps to complete:
      • stopaiw
      Any steps that were in a processing state will move to an error state when you restart the system.
    • To stop the secondary server after the currently processing steps are complete:
      • stopaiw -q
    RICOH ProcessDirector disconnects the secondary server from the primary server and stops the secondary server.
