grpwise-ma - GroupWise Monitor Script.
grpwise-ma [start] [stop] [status] [restart]
The grpwise-ma script is created during installation and controls the Monitor Agent. (The grpwise script controls the other four GroupWise agents.) The grpwise-ma script is created in the /etc/init.d directory. It works in conjunction with the monitor.xml file, which is created in the /opt/novell/groupwise/agents/share directory. The monitor.xml file points the Monitor Agent to a domain database (wpdomain.db) where it can access a list of agents to monitor in your GroupWise system.
The grpwise-ma script includes an MA_OPTIONS variable where you can specify Monitor Agent startup switches. This is convenient because the Monitor Agent does not use a startup file as the other GroupWise agents do.
The Monitor Agent is Run Control compliant. During installation, a symbolic link is created from /etc/init.d/grpwise-ma to /usr/sbin/rcgrpwise-ma. Typically, /usr/sbin is already on your path, so you can run rcgrpwise-ma from any directory, rather than changing to /etc/init.d in order to run the grpwise-ma script.
