Installation (software-only) : Starting or stopping FortiDB
 
Starting or stopping FortiDB
In some situations, it is necessary to start and or stop FortiDB manually. For example, when you update or replace your FortiDB license file, or reboot UNIX.
When FortiDB stops, it saves state information in the internal database. When log in again, it retrieves this information and reopens the databases that were open at the time of the shutdown. Since state information is periodically saved during your session, FortiDB can restore most of the state, even if it goes down due to a power failure or similar problem.

Execute the <FortiDB install directory>\bin\start.bat batch file.
Click Start > Programs > FortiDB > Start FortiDB.
