Starting the base product and secondary servers on AIX

The Ricoh ProcessDirector base product and secondary servers start automatically when the AIX systems on which they are installed start. However, you might need to start the base product or a secondary server without restarting the entire operating system.

After a system shutdown and restart, all the printers are disabled. If you want all the printers that were enabled before the shutdown to be enabled after the system is restarted, you can change the Remember enabled status of printers system property to Yes.

To start the base product and secondary servers on and 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. Enter this command:
    • startaiw
  4. If the startaiw command fails, enter these commands:
    • stopaiw
    • startaiw
On the primary computer, the command starts the primary server, the user interface program, and the information center. On a secondary computer, the secondary server starts and connects to the primary server.
