    Before you use the WSAPI server, you must make sure that the server is enabled and enable it if needed.

    Enabling WSAPI Server Through SSH

    To enable the WSAPI server, do the following:

    1. Log on to the Processor with administrator privileges:

    #ssh <administrator account>@<SP IP Address>

    1. Run the following command to view the current state of the WSAPI server:

    #showwsapi


    -- -State- -HTTP_State-
    HTTP_Port -HTTPS_State- HTTPS_Port -Version-
    Enabled   Active Enabled       8008
    Enabled       8080         1.1

    1. If the WSAPI server is not running, run the following command to start it:

    #startwsapi

    1. If the HTTP port is disabled, run the following command to enable it:

    #setwsapi -http enable

    If the HTTPS port is disabled, run the following command to enable it:

    #setwsapi -https enable

    Enabling WSAPI Server Through Management Console
