    Central Start/Stop Utility

    This utility allows you to start up, shut down, and restart the Primo application from a master Primo server in multi-server topologies.
    This mechanism only affects the Primo application. If you need to start/stop the Apache and database servers, refer to those sections in this guide.
    Welcome to the Central Start/Stop Utility
    This utility allows you start/stop all the Primo servers on this installation.
    Please choose the action you want to run:
    1. primo central start
    2. primo central stop
    3. primo central restart
    Central Start/Stop Utility
    Each time an action is executed, the logs are stored in the following directory on the master server:
    /exlibris/primo/p3_1/primoe/central_start/log
    This utility is usually installed on the Back Office server, which must have SSH access to all other Primo servers in multi-server topologies. To provide automatic access, SSH keys must be implemented for each Primo server in your topology. Otherwise, the system will prompt you to enter a password each time another server is accessed by the utility.
