Starting Logi Report Server Monitor

After you have installed Logi Report Server Monitor, a batch file named MonitorServer.bat is generated automatically in <install_root>\bin. You can start Logi Report Server Monitor by running this batch file.

To successfully start Logi Report Server Monitor, these requirements should be met:

  • Copy rmi.auth from <adminserver_install_root>\bin of the admin server to <monitor_install_root>\bin, or remove rmi.auth from <adminserver_install_root>\bin, or add -Djrs.rmi.auth_file=%authFileName% to MonitorServer.bat to specify the authentication file.
  • Make sure that the server.rmimonitor.enable property in the server.properties file in the <adminserver_install_root>\bin directory is set to true. The default value is true.
  • If the admin server and Monitor are installed on different computers, you need specify the right host and port of the admin server in Monitor side via the two properties in the server.properties file in the <monitor_install_root>\bin directory before starting Logi Report Server Monitor:

    admin.server.host=The RMI host name or IP address of the admin server.

    admin.server.port=The RMI port number of the admin server.

    The default values of these two properties are for the admin server which is installed in the same computer.

    Note: The server.properties file is generated when you run MonitorServer.bat for the first time after installation. The step does not require that the Monitor is started and connected to the admin server successfully.

  • The admin server is started successfully. It does not matter whether you start the admin server first or the Monitor first.
