Starting a local ArcSDE service on UNIX or Linux
The sdemon command is used to manage ArcSDE services configured on UNIX and Linux systems.
When starting a service on the local machine, there is no need to specify the server name; the local host is assumed.
You must be logged in as either the owner of the ArcSDE service's home directory, $SDEHOME, or as the root user to start an ArcSDE service.
- Type the sdemon command with the start operation to start the ArcSDE service.
You will be prompted to type a password. Type the password of the ArcSDE administrative user. The password is not displayed on the screen for system security.
Please enter the ArcSDE DBA password:
sdemon –o start –i 4000
If using the default service port number, 5151, you do not need to specify the –i option.
