The FPS can be launched from the Windows Start menu or by directly executing a script file. When the peer server is launched, the enterprise server must be running on the configured machine for successful peer server startup. Please refer to section Changing to different ESB Network for instructions on how to configure the Enterprise Server URL for a Peer Server. If the Enterprise Server is not reachable by the Peer Server or if it is not running, the Peer Server keeps waiting until it can reach the Enterprise Server on a specific connection URL. The Enterprise Server starts successfully when the Peer Server is able to establish a connection with the Enterprise Server.

Using Script Files

  • To start the FPS server with the default profile (which is profile1), run the script server.bat/.sh –mode fps available under <fiorano_installation_dir>\esb\server\bin folder.

The server by default starts in FPS mode if mode argument is not provided.

  • To start the FPS server with a specific profile other than the default profile, run the script server.bat/.sh available under <fiorano_installation_dir>\esb\server\bin folder with the profile option as shown below:


Example: <profileName>=haprofile1/primary or <profileName>=haprofile1/secondary when servers are to be started in HA mode.


In UNIX systems, servers will by default start in the background mode. Pass runtime argument –nobackground to the server startup script to run the server in console mode. If the servers are not to be run in background mode, modify the file %FIORANO_HOME%/launcher/ so that nobackground="" and is changed to nobackground="true".

To install FPS as a Windows NT service, run the command:


NT services will have to be re-installed if changes are made to any configuration files. This includes fiorano_vars as well as server.conf.

To remove FPS as a Windows NT service, run the command:

To install/uninstall FPS as a service on UNIX, refer to readmeWrapperService.txt present under %INSTALL_DIR%/Fiorano/esb/server/bin/service directory.
