Hello All,

Before shutting down the APO System we need to stop X_server first.

In our KT document the following steps they have mentioned that

1. Stop liveCache

2. Give X_server stop at OS level

3. Stop SAP

Here i am not able unable to make sense that what is X_SERVER and what is use of this command.

Can someone give some inputs on this.

Hello Krushna,

-> The X Server is the communication server of the database system. More information about x_server could be found in MAXDB library.

You could find the MAXDB library at

< -> Glossary -> X Server

& -> Tools -> Utilities -> X Server >

You could stop the x_server on the liveCache server using command:

x_server stop

For SAP liveCache documentation links please see the SAP note 767598.

-> If you have further questions/problems with liveCache/MAXDB please post them to the liveCache/MAXDB forum:

Thank you and best regards, Natalia Khlopina
