The CCM is a server troubleshooting and node configuration tool provided in two forms :
- In a Microsoft Windows environment, the CCM allows you to manage local and remote servers through its graphical user interface (GUI) or from a command line.
- In a UNIX environment, the CCM shell script (ccm.sh) allows you to manage servers from the command-line.
The CCM allows you to view and to modify server settings only while Business Objects server processes are offline. The SAP BOBJ - Central Management Console (CMC) (CMC) is used to stop server processes, then the CCM is used to modify performance settings or change server port numbers.
