Starting Broker Server Using the broker_start Command
If you need to start a Broker Server that does not appear in the Broker Server list, or if you want to start a Broker Server from the command line, you can use the broker_start utility.
To use this procedure, Broker Monitor must be running on the host machine where the Broker Server is installed. If Broker Monitor is not running, use the procedure in Starting Broker Monitor to start Broker Monitor and the Broker Server.
*To manually start a Broker Server from the command line (using broker_start)
1. On the machine where Broker Server is installed, navigate to the following directory:
webMethods Broker_directory /bin
2. Run the following command:
broker_start hostName:portNum -monitor_port monitorPort
Where...
Specifies...
hostName
The name of the host machine on which the Broker Server is installed. If hostName is omitted, localhost is used.
portNum
The Broker Server's base port number. If portNum is omitted, port 6849 is used.
monitorPort
The port number (default 6850) of the Broker Monitor that is monitoring the Broker Server.
The following examples show how you can use broker_start:
broker_start
broker_start localhost:6849
 
broker_start localhost:6845 -monitor_port 7850
 
broker_start atlas -monitor_port 8850
 
broker_start atlas.dev.mycompany.com:6845 -monitor_port 6850
