If information is already configured, it opens a dialog box, giving you the option to perform a Cold or Cool start.  Select the appropriate option and click on the Yes button. Web ViewPoint E issues an OBEY request on the host for the proper startup file previously defined for this Pathway using the Administration Function (described earlier in this document). The result of this process (obey file listing) is displayed in a new Window.  This shows the beginning timestamp, the result/listing of the obey file, the end timestamp, and duration of the startup for that Pathway.

Shut down – If a startup file name was not previously entered, you will be prompted to enter it.

Otherwise, clicking on Stop opens a dialog box which requests your confirmation to shut down the Pathway.

Web ViewPoint E issues a request on the host to OBEY the shutdown file previously defined for this Pathway using the Administration Function (described earlier in this document). The result of this process (obey file listing) is displayed in a new Window.  A timestamp shows the beginning of shutdown operation, and another shows the time when it completes.  Web ViewPoint E also calculates and displays the time the shutdown operation takes.
