Restarting jive messenger

Hi all,

First of all, I wanted to thank everyone that helped me with my first post. Iā€™'m really new to Jive but think its really cool. So, thanks for indulging me and helping me learn the ropes.

I am developing an ASP .NET application. And I was wondering how I could send a command to the Jive Messenger to restart. Does anyone know a way to restart the server except by using the buttons on the Jive App Screen?



Right now Messenger does not have support for remote administation though it is in our roadmap. Meanwhile, you may want to try a tool like this one: http://www.sysinternals.com/ntw2k/freeware/pstools.shtml.

you can install Jive as a service on Windows

bin/messenger-service.exe /install

and then you can stop and start it with:

messenger-service.exe /stop

messenger-service.exe /start

or you can restart service.

In linux you can play almost the same way with /bin/messenger script or jive-messengerd daemon.

Well, it could be useful to have restart switch and i was talking about this in my first thread in there:)
