Progress Explorer Tool - Where is it installed?

I have my PET tool installed on my client only because we are using the 64 bit Epicor 9.05.600b Progress database on a Windows 2008 Server R2 64-bit server. The PET tool will not work in a 64 bit environment. Could they maybe think you are using 64-bit software on your server?

Hi All

Where do you have your Progress Explore Tool installed? On the Epicor server, or
on your Client?

When Epicor did our installation, they installed PET on our server and that is
where we have always been taught to use it through all of our system admin
training and on any Webex calls with Epicor, this is where it has been used.

Now they are saying that it should be installed or used on the server and it
should only be used on a client.

Have you heard of this before? It seems strange now (after 2-3 years) that they
are telling us that we shouldnt be using it on the server and that it shouldnt
be installed on there.

We frequently use it to check the status of the Apps and DB and to stop/start
them manually. I know you can use the asbman command, but in the system admin
training we were always told to use Progress Explorer Tool on the server.

Please let me know where you have it installed and if you use it on the server.
Also who installed it?

Thanks,


CHRIS

We are on Vantage 8.03.409C, and it is installed on our server as well.

Who is saying this? Anyone in particular at Epicor?

The PET is installed as part of the default installation of OpenEdge.

I know they are now recommending the use of an "Admin Workstation" but that
is not an absolute requirement unless you are on 64-bit OpenEdge for 9.05.x

There is no harm running it on a server, however it can be easier to run it
on a pre-2008 machine and quicker to access if you install it locally to
your own workstation instead of needing to always RDP into a server to check
something like that.

Hi All

Where do you have your Progress Explore Tool installed? On the Epicor
server, or on your Client?

When Epicor did our installation, they installed PET on our server and that
is where we have always been taught to use it through all of our system
admin training and on any Webex calls with Epicor, this is where it has been
used.

Now they are saying that it should be installed or used on the server and it
should only be used on a client.

Have you heard of this before? It seems strange now (after 2-3 years) that

the server.

Please let me know where you have it installed and if you use it on the

I didnt catch their name but the reason I logged the call in the first place was
because every now and again on our server when we RDP'd in, either straight away
or randomly was we were working on the server (with ot without PET open) we
would get an error

The error says 'Progress Client Encounteres a problem and need to close.

"They replied and asked if the Progress Explorer Tool was installed on the
server.

They also asked what version of windows it was and that if it was 64bit, it is
not compatible alsthough some consultants use a hack it is not something we
recommend.

PET is a client tool so it designed to be installed on client machines rather
than servers."

From what I understand, there isn’t an PET for 9.04.600 / OE 10.2A… when I did my test install, it wasn’t available. This was also on a 64-bit Windows 2008 R2 box. So, in order to start and stop various appservers, databases and see configs, I installed and use the OpenEdge Explorer. You can install it from your Epicor 9.05 CD, it’s under the folder called OEManage, or you can download it from epicweb. It’s also not a traditional application, it’s a localhost web server and you interface with it via a web browser. So, you can access it from any computer, which is nice in a pinch for remote administration.
