Stop Server Confirmation

Use this page to confirm that you want an enterprise server to be stopped.


Stopping a server might cause application connection errors and loss of data.


Shows the server type. The only type of server you can stop is an MFES server. MFES stands for Micro Focus enterprise server. This is a server type that provides a run-time environment for COBOL programs running as services. MSS in brackets after MFES indicates that the server has Mainframe Subsystem Support (MSS) enabled.


Shows the name of the server.

Status Log

Shows information about the most recent event that occurred on this server, and how long the server has been in its current state.


Shows how many service operations are registered with the enterprise server.


Shows a description of the server.

Clear dynamically assigned address values

Check this to indicate that you want addresses and port numbers that were dynamically assigned when you created new communications processes and listeners to be cleared.

Restart server when it is stopped

Check this to indicate that you want the server to stop and then restart. In order for the restart to work, the Server Monitor must be enabled. To enable the Server Monitor, click Options on the left hand side of the Enterprise Server Administration screen and select the Monitor tab.

Use "Force stop" option

Check this if you want to perform a forced shutdown of the server.

Mark server "Stopped"

Check this if you know that all the processes for this server are already stopped.

Security settings

This section indicates whether the server is using its own security settings and associated security manager list, or the Default ES Security configuration settings, which can be shared by multiple servers.

Where it is using its own security settings, the security managers in its security manager list are displayed.

Stop processes as

This specifies the operating system account used to stop the Enterprise Server processes. You can choose to use the currently logged-on user (that is, the user account under which Directory Server is running), or you can specify the username and password for an alternative user.

Use Enterprise Server credentials of

When an enterprise server stops, it connects to Directory Server to update status information. To do this, it requires Directory Server user credentials (that is, credentials that Directory Server will verify and authorize). In order to update the Directory Server information, this user must be granted modify permission on the appropriate enterprise server resource within Directory Server.

The process of stopping the server also requires user credentials that the enterprise server will verify and authorize. In order to run the command used to stop the enterprise server, the user must have Alter permissions on the casstop resource within the OPERCMDS resource class.

It is important to note that the enterprise server is a separate security domain from the Directory Server. For example, it may be using different security configuration and different security managers.

You can specify that startup should use built-in default users or the credentials with which you are currently logged on to Enterprise Server Administration. Alternatively, you can specify a different username and password.

If you use the currently logged on user, or specify alternative user credentials, you must ensure that the user is present in both the Directory Server and the enterprise server security domains. Within the Directory Server domain, the user must have modify permission on the appropriate enterprise server resource within the Servers resource class. Within the enterprise server security domain, the user must have alter permissions on the casstop resource within the OPERCMDS resource class.
