Navigate to the directory <foglight_home>/bin and run the following command:

When the Management Server starts successfully, the following message appears in the command window:

-s

Starts the Management Server as a daemon (if the process is not started as a daemon, the command prompt is held captive by the running Management Server, and remains in the foreground).

NOTE: The following scripts in $FGLHOME/bin directory can start the Management Server as a daemon and shut it down, respectively:
fmsStartup.sh
fmsShutdown.sh

-n

Another option is to start the Management Server using initialization scripts. This option is particularly useful when you want to automatically start the Management Server after it has been rebooted.

The initialization scripts can be found in the directory <foglight_home>/scripts/init.d. A readme.txt file is available in the same location. Review this file before running the script as it contains valuable information on how to use the script for your specific platform.

Do one of the following:

Type Ctrl-C on the command window in which the Management Server started.
