106 Deploying IBM Workplace Services Express on the IBM Eserver iSeries Server
5.1 Starting and stopping a Workplace Services Express server
There are two ways you can start and stop a Workplace Services Express server. The first
method is to use the IBM Web Administration for iSeries interface. The second method is to
use Qshell scripts. The Qshell scripts start the Workplace Services Express portal server,
although they do not start the HTTP server or the document rendering server. For this reason,
we recommend that you use the IBM Web Administration for iSeries interface to start and
stop the Workplace Services Express server.
For more information about the Qshell scripts and other advanced administration topics, visit
the IBM Workplace Services Express Version 2.5.x Information Center at:

Note: The windows shown in this chapter were taken after i5/OS V5R3 PTF SI20496 was
installed. If you do not have this PTF installed on your system, you might notice slight
variations on some windows. Due to the performance improvement included with PTF
SI20496, we recommend that you apply this PTF. For additional information, refer to 9.5.4,
“X virtual frame buffer verses virtual network computing” on page 299.
Important: The Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) server must be started
before the Workplace Services Express server is started. If it is not started, the
Workplace Services Express server will not start.
