Mercedes Benz EWA Admin Tool Guide
Purpose of this document
This document describes the EWA Admin Tool Interface of EWA net which is used to update, manage and maintain the WIS and EPC Databases as well as managing the state of the server.
Besides the software installation, the applications need to have access to certain databases for content data. This content is not installed within the setup of the software but needs to be updated after installation. The aim of this behavior is to decouple software and data update and minimize the downtime of the applications.

This document describes the use and function of the EWA Admin Tool. The following use cases are documented in this description:
.Start of the Tool
.Starting and Stopping of EWA services
.Installing Databases for EPC
.Updating Databases for EPC
.Removing Databases for EPC
.Installing Databases for WIS
.Updating Databases for WIS
.Removing Databases for WIS
.Wiping Database content (Cleanup)
.Usage of the Tool
.Logging and Troubleshooting

Startup of EWA Administration Tool

The EWA net Administration tool can be started using the favorites menu inside the Internet Explorer. This entry is created during installation and is only available on the server.

Picture 1: Start of EWA net Administration tool using the favorites menu

The EWA net Administration tool can be only started on the EWA net server. If the link to this tool is not available, it can be started manually using the command


where EWA_HOME need to be replaced with the directory where EWA net was installed.

Starting, Stopping and Monitoring of EWA core services
With the EWA Administration Tool it is possible to influence the availability of the server and see if it is running. The Administration tool acts as a service monitor and shows if the needed Windows services are running or not.

Picture 2: Service Monitor Page for the Server
Within this panel the EWA net server (application server) can be started and stopped. This is more or less a shortcut for the Windows “Services” view.

Also within this panel the user management database (i.e. for specific user data, FIN Cache,…) can be started and stopped.
Database “start” and “stop” is not simply starting and stopping services. A “stop” always also stops the corresponding TransBase multiplexer service. And “start” always starts both the database engine and the TransBase multiplexer service.
If the services are stopped the application server will not be available for all users. Please take this into account when starting or stopping services.
