When the installation is completed, verify that the daemon is running using the
ovstatus itsl2 command. Use the following procedure to manually start the
itsl2 daemon:
򐂰 For UNIX, if the Tivoli NetView product is not started, always use the
/usr/OV/bin/serversetup utility to start the daemons. This utility automatically
starts the Tivoli Switch Analyzer product. If the Tivoli NetView product is
started, use the Tivoli NetView ovstop and ovstart commands to start and
stop itsl2 daemon. For example, use the following command to start the itsl2
daemon:
/usr/OV/bin/ovstart itsl2
򐂰 For Windows, use the following command to start IBM Tivoli Switch Analyzer:
\usr\ov\bin\ovstart itsl2
