Ending IBM's HTTP Server

Product: Strategi
Modified Date:

If you are using the IP address of your iSeries for Strategi, you may have issues with the IBM default HTTP server starting up automatically after an IPL. You can remedy this by preventing the IBM HTTP server from starting.

Should you encounter this problem, you should run through the following steps:

Verify IBM's HTTP server is listening on the local port www-http
1. At command line, type: NETSTAT
2. Select "Work with TCP/IP connection status"
3. Display details for "Local Port" of 'www-http'. The Associated user profile should be QTMHHTTP.

If the user profile is QTMHHTTP, do the following:

End HTTP Server
1. At command line type: ENDTCPSVR SERVER(*HTTP) HTTPSVR(*ALL)
2. Wait for subsystem QHTTPSVR to end

You can now start the Strategi subsystem using the STRSGI command.

To prevent this from happening on future IPLs, you can change the IBM HTTP server to no longer autostart.
