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. 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.
