PSADMIN and Remote Desktop
Ever had problems connecting to your server hosting the NT process scheduler or App Server using Remote Desktop and not being able to use“psadmin” to perform administrative tasks?
Here is what happens when you connect to the server using remote desktop and invoke psadmin.
You will receive the above message when you try to check the status of process scheduler.
So, how do you determine if you NT process scheduler is running? There are multiple ways to determine if your process scheduler is running.
1.Look at the task manager
2.Look at the log files
3.Check status using psadmin
In this post, I will cover the last method since the other two are straighforward.
Here is how you can use psadmin when connected using remote desktop.
1.Ensure that the “Telnet” service is started on the server
2.Go to Start > Run > Telnet <servername>
3.You will get a command prompt window
4.From this prompt, go to your PS_HOME/appserv
Now, you should be able to use the “psadmin” utility for monitoring, configuring, start, stop, etc.
