Starting and Testing GIS

The final step in the installation and configuration process is to confirm that GIS is properly installed and runs successfully. This chapter includes the following sections:

Starting GIS

If you used the default installation directory, the start scripts are already set up so that /GIS/bin/ is the current directory.

Choosing Your Start Script

Purpose
To choose the correct start script to startup GIS.
Prerequisites


Start

  1. Locate the start scripts:
    • For GIS:SOAP installations, the start scripts are located in the bin/ subdirectory under the top-level installation directory.
  2. Select the start script for your environment platform:
    • For GIS:SOAP installations:
      • run_gis_soap.sh is a UNIX Bourne shell script compatible with Korn and with BASH shells. It is used for startup on Solaris, HP-UX, Linux and AIX platforms.
      • run_gis_soap.bat is a batch-file script used for startup on Windows platforms.
  3. Verify that the values, entered during the IP installation, are correct by using a text editor to open and inspect the start script. To do so, follow the steps in the Editing the Start Script procedure.
  4. Run the script.


End
Next Steps

Editing the Start Script

Purpose
To verify that the values, entered during the IP installation, are correct by using a text editor to open and inspect the start script.
Prerequisites


Start

  1. Use a text editor to open and inspect the Windows, AIX, HP-UX, Linux or Solaris start script (whichever version you intend to use) to verify that the values, entered during the IP installation, are correct.
  2. Edit the value of the port parameter found in the .../conf/server.xml file, located under the top-level installation directory to change the port for Tomcat. The default port assignment for Tomcat is 8080. If you change this port number, any references to port 8080 in the Statistics SDK and Configuration SDK Developer’s Guides and API References must refer to the port number you configured here.


End
Next Steps

Starting and Testing GIS

Purpose
To start and test GIS to confirm installation and configuration is correct.
Prerequisites

  • Confirm that Configuration Server is running.


Start

  1. Run the correct start script to start up GIS. See Choosing Your Start Script.
  2. Access GIS using a web browser:
  3. Follow one of the start procedures:

Configuring the License Section of the Option Tab for GIS SOAP

Purpose
To configure the license Section of the Options tab for GIS:SOAP during configuration of a GIS Application object.

Important
You can also configure the license file parameter at startup, see Specifying Licensing at Startup (GIS:SOAP).


Prerequisites

  • You must have configured your application for GIS:SOAP
    Important
    GIS does not support redundant License Managers. However, you can

    specify multiple independent License Managers, using one of the following formats:

    • Windows: server1;server2;server3 [and so on].
    • UNIX: server1:server2:server3 [and so on].
    You can also enter the license information, in either format, on the command line at startup, see Specifying Licensing at Startup (GIS:SOAP). If you do so, the command-line information takes priority over the license-file option settings. See Starting and Testing GIS, for details.
    Important
    If you are upgrading to GIS 7.6 from Genesys Interface Server 7.1 or earlier, migrate your existing license keys. For details, see the Genesys Licensing Guide.


Start

  1. Double-click license or select it from the Sections combo box of the Options tab of the GIS Application object.
  2. Open the license-file option.
  3. For the license-file option value, enter either:
    • The value <port>@<host> for the host running the FlexLM License Manager daemon.
    • The path to a local license file.
  4. Use the information found in the license Section as a guide to configuring additional settings in the Options tab’s license section.


End
Next Steps

Specifying Licensing at Startup (GIS SOAP)

Purpose
To configure the location of the license file using a command line.
Prerequisites

  • You must have configured your application as a SOAP server.

  • Important
    You can also configure the license file location during configuration of the GIS Application object (see Genesys Integration Server).


Start

  1. Append the -l option on the command line, followed by either:
    • The License Manager <port>@<host> argument to specify the port number and host name for the License Manager server.
    • The full path to the license file, including the license file name.
      Important
      If you specify license information in both the command-line and

      the during the configuration of the GIS Application object, the command-line option takes priority over the license-file” option set in Configuration Manager. GIS does not support redundant License Managers. However, you can specify multiple independent License Managers, using one of the following formats.

      • For Windows: -l "server1;server2;server3" [and so on—include the quotes].
      • For UNIX-based: -l server1:server2:server3 [and so on].


End
Next Steps

Starting on UNIX-based Platforms (GIS SOAP)

Purpose
To start GIS:SOAP on UNIX-based platforms.
Prerequisites

  • You must have configured your application as a SOAP server.


Start

  1. Open a shell window.
  2. At the command line, make your GIS installation directory the current directory (for example: cd /GIS).
  3. At the command line, enter one of the following:
    • gis.sh -l <lic_server_port>@<lic_server_host> -host <cfg_host> -port <cfg_port> -app <app_name>.
    • ./bin/run_gis_soap.sh</pre> (for GIS:SOAP installations).

  4. Important
    If you use the second command, specify your <lic_server_port>@<lic_server_host> licensing information in the run_gis_soap.sh or startServer.sh file.


End
Next Steps

Verify the Status of GIS (GIS SOAP)

Purpose
To check that a GIS:SOAP instance is running properly.
Prerequisites


Start

  1. Open a web browser.
  2. Open the GIS web page, as follows:
    • If you installed GIS as a stand-alone server, enter the following URL in the address bar:
      http://<gis_host>:8080/gis
    • If you installed GIS in WebSphere Base 5.x, enter the following URL in the address bar:
      http://<WebSphere_host>:9080/gis76
    • If you installed GIS in WebSphere Express 5.x, enter the following URL in the address bar:
      http://<WebSphere_host>:7080/gis76
    • If you installed GIS in WebSphere 6.0.x, enter the following URL in the address bar:
      http://<WebSphere_host>:9081/gis76

    • Important
      The port numbers listed above are the default ports for each type of GIS installation. If you changed the port during configuration and installation, adjust the URL accordingly.
  3. Confirm that browser has connected to GIS web page. The page shows the following links:
    • Overview—Presents basic statistics such as the GIS version number, Java and system resources, and essential server information.
    • SessionService—Presents information about service state and number of sessions.
    • StatService—Presents connectivity information about service state, license name, Stat Server, and current number of statistics subscribed to by agents.
    • CSProxyService—Presents information about service state and license name, the CS Proxy SOAP interface, and configuration information. Also enables changes to configuration objects.

    • AIL—Presents connectivity information about service state, license name, and the AIL Server.
    • OPENMEDIA—Presents connectivity information about service state and the Open Media Server.
