Enterprise Manager - BBjServices: Servers

To view this topic for the preceding Enterprise Manager, see Enterprise Manager - Server Information (Servers tab).

Description

BBjServices is comprised of a number of different servers, each with a very specific purpose within the system. For example, there is a server to handle SQL operations, one for accessing data files, another for administrative tasks, etc. Some servers allow multiple instances to be run, where one might use SSL while the other does not. The Enterprise Manager provides an interface for managing each service.

To access the Servers, select BBjServices > Servers, and the servers tab will open to the right.

This tab displays all the available BBj Server Types. To view the various properties for a particular server, click the arrow to expand the details.

To change a value, expand the server’s properties and select the value to be changed. After making changes to any server property, make sure to save the changes so they will take effect. Many of the settings on this tab require a restart of BBjServices to take effect.

The following table describes the properties available. Some properties are specific to certain servers, while others are available for multiple server types. The more general properties are listed at the beginning of the table, and server-specific properties are listed under the corresponding server name.

General Properties

Bind Address

Sets the IP address of the only machine able to connect to the server. An address of 0.0.0.0 accepts connections from any IP address. An address of 127.0.0.1 (localhost) allows server access from that machine only.
Consider setting the Filesystem Server bind address to 127.0.0.1 to restrict access when the machine is outside of a firewall and network accessibility is not required.

Port

Identifies the port on which the server listens for connections.

Run Server

Enables or disables the server when BBjServices is running

Use SSL

Enables Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) for encrypting the data passed to and from the server. Both client and server must agree to use SSL.
