If you installed the Adapter Platform Server as a service, it automatically starts when the system starts up. The following instructions describe how to use the sm_service utility to manually start and stop the Adapter Platform Server.
To use the sm_service utility to install a service or start a service, you must have administrative privileges on the local host.
Issue one of the following from the command line:
BASEDIR/smarts/bin/sm_service start ic-icoi-server
BASEDIR/smarts/bin/sm_service stop ic-icoi-server
The VMware Smart Assurance System Administration Guide provides more information about the sm_service utility or about how to modify sm_service options.
