Starting gfsh

Before you start gfsh, confirm that you have set JAVA_HOME and that your PATH variable includes the gfsh executable.

Note: On Windows, you must have the JAVA_HOME environment variable set properly to use start, stop and status commands for both locators and servers.

To launch the gfsh command-line interface, execute the following command at the prompt on any machine that is currently installed with Pivotal GemFire:

Start gfsh on Windows:

<product_directory>\bin\gfsh.bat 

where <product_directory> corresponds to the location where you installed Pivotal GemFire.

Start gfsh on Unix:

<product_directory>/bin/gfsh

where <product_directory> corresponds to the location where you installed Pivotal GemFire. Upon execution, the gfsh script appends the required Pivotal GemFire and JDK Jar libraries to your existing CLASSPATH.

If you have successfully started gfsh, the gfsh splash screen and prompt appears.

You can also run some gfsh commands directly within your terminal without entering a gfsh prompt. For example, on Unix/Linux you could enter:

$ gfsh start server --name=server1

or on Windows:

prompt> gfsh start server --name=server1
