Background documentationStarting the Global Listener Without NI Support (Unix and Linux) Locate this document in the navigation structure


On Unix and Linux, when the global listener is started, an SAP MaxDB NI server is automatically started as well (as a separate process to support the SAP NI network protocol).

If you do not need to access your database via SAPRouter, NI support is not required.


Start the global listener without NI support:

<global_programs_path>\bin\sdbgloballistener -S <tcp_port> -Y start

<tcp_port> = TCP/IP port number of the global listener

Note Note

You can display the global programs path using the dbm_getpath DBM command:

dbmcli dbm_getpath GlobalProgPath

For more information, see Database Manager CLI, dbm_getpath.

End of the note.
