-ui server option

Opens the Server Startup Options dialog and display the Server Messages window, or start the database server in console mode if a usable display isn't available on Linux (start the database server whether or not the X window server starts).


{ dbsrv10 | dbeng10 } -ui

Applies to

Linux with X window server support


The -ui option allows you to use the Server Startup Options dialog to specify server options when starting the database server and display the Server Messages window once the server has started.

When -ui is specified, the server attempts to find a usable display. If it cannot find one, for example because the DISPLAY environment variable isn't set or because X window server isn't running, then the database server starts in console mode. If you do not want the database server to start when it cannot locate a usable display, specify the -ux option rather than -ui. You should only specify one of -uc, -ui, or -ux.

When the -ux option is the only option specified on the server command line, the Server Startup Options dialog appears where you can enter options for starting the database server. The Server Messages dialog appears once the server starts. If you specify other server options in addition to -ux, then the Server Messages window appears once the database server starts.

For more information about starting the database server as a daemon, see -ud server option.
