-qn server option

Specifies that the Server Messages window is not minimized on startup.


{ dbsrv10 | dbeng10 } -qn ...

Applies to


Linux (if X window server is used)


By default, the Server Messages window automatically minimizes once database server startup completes. When this option is specified, the Server Messages window does not minimize after the database server starts.

The Server Messages window may appear in the background if an application autostarting the database server it is not active and -qn is specified.

On Linux, you must specify the -ux option (use X window server) with the -qn option.
