How can I do a graceful shutdown of JSCAPE MFT Server or one of its domains?

Starting from v7.2 and above it’s now possible to shutdown the server or any of its domains gracefully. A graceful shutdown allows ongoing transfers to finish successfully while preventing new incoming connections to the server.

The following two command line tools will gracefully shutdown a domain and the whole server respectively:

js-shutdowndomain (*nix) / js-shutdowndomain.exe (Windows)
js-shutdown (*nix) / js-shutdown.exe (Windows)

Please note that even when transfers are completed the actual shutdown could stall while there are still users connected to the server. Only when all users have disconnected or their sessions timed out will the shutdown proceed. You could also use the "Sessions" module of Server Manager to determine and close sessions that are idling and not doing transfers.
