The CommuniGate Pro Server can be shut down by sending it a SIGTERM or a SIGINT signal.
On Unix and OpenVMS platforms you can use the startup script with the stop parameter, or you can get the Server process id from the ProcessID file in the base directory and use the kill command to stop the server. On OpenVMS platforms the KILL.EXE program can be found in the application directory.
On the Windows NT platform, you can use the Services control panel to stop and start the CommuniGate Pro server.
You can also use the shutdown CLI API command to stop the server.
When the Server receives a shutdown request, it closes all the connections, commits or rolls back Mailbox modifications, and performs other shutdown tasks. Usually these tasks take 5-15 seconds, but sometimes (depending on the OS network subsystem) they can take more time. Always allow the Server to shut down completely, and do not interrupt the shutdown process.
