Setting server autostart

An on-premises installation of Edge Private Cloud does not restart automatically during a reboot. You can use the following commands to enable/disable autostart on any node.

To enable all components on the node:

/opt/apigee/apigee-service/bin/apigee-all enable_autostart

To disable all components on the node:

/opt/apigee/apigee-service/bin/apigee-all disable_autostart

To enable or disable autostart for a specific component on the node:

/opt/apigee/apigee-service/bin/apigee-service component_name enable_autostart
/opt/apigee/apigee-service/bin/apigee-service component_name disable_autostart

Where component_name identifies the component. Possible values include:

  • apigee-cassandra (Cassandra)
  • apigee-openldap (OpenLDAP)
  • apigee-postgresql (PostgreSQL database)
  • apigee-qpidd (Qpidd)
  • apigee-sso (Edge SSO)
  • apigee-zookeeper (ZooKeeper)
  • edge-management-server (Management Server)
  • edge-management-ui (new Edge UI)
  • edge-message-processor (Message Processor)
  • edge-postgres-server (Postgres Server)
  • edge-qpid-server (Qpid Server)
  • edge-router (Edge Router)
  • edge-ui (Classic UI)

The script only affects the node on which you run it. If you want to configure all nodes for autostart, run the script on all nodes.

Note that the order of starting the components is very important:

  1. First start ZooKeeper, Cassandra, LDAP (OpenLDAP)

    If ZooKeeper and Cassandra are installed as cluster, the complete cluster must be up and running before starting any other Apigee component.

  2. Then, any Apigee component (Management Server, Router, UI, etc.). For Postgres Server first start postgresql and for Qpid Server first start qpidd.


  • For a complete restart of an Apigee Edge environment, the nodes with ZooKeeper and Cassandra need to be booted completely prior to any other node.
  • If any other Apigee component is running on one or more ZooKeeper and Cassandra nodes, it is not recommended to use autostart. Instead, start the components in the order described in Starting, stopping, restarting, and checking the status of Apigee Edge.

Troubleshooting autostart

If you configure autostart, and Edge encounters issues with starting the OpenLDAP server, you can try disabling SELinux or setting it to permissive mode on all nodes. To configure SELinux:

  1. Edit the /etc/sysconfig/selinux file:
    sudo vi /etc/sysconfig/selinux
  2. Set SELINUX=disabled or SELINUX=permissive.
  3. Save your edits.
  4. Restart the machine and then restart Edge:
    /opt/apigee/apigee-service/bin/apigee-all restart
