Below are details on the supported command-line arguments and instruction for starting the Rhino SDK.

Command-line arguments

The Rhino SDK start scripts support the following command-line options:

Option Purpose

Specifies the path to a JDK installation that should be used to run the Rhino SDK. This option only has effect when starting the Rhino SDK for the first time. After the first start the file config/config_variables is read to find the JDK.

Important If you have not configured the JAVA_HOME environment variable, you must provide this argument the first time you start the Rhino SDK.

Indicates that Rhino should be started with the SLEE in the Running state.


Indicates that Rhino should be started with the SLEE in the Stopping state.


The -s and -x options are mutually exclusive.

In the case neither the -s nor -x option is specified, the following default behaviours occur:

  • If it is the first time that the Rhino SDK is started (or the persistent database has been reinitialised), then then SLEE starts in the Running state.

  • If the Rhino SDK has been shutdown and restarted, then the SLEE starts in whatever operational state it had before the previous shutdown.


To start the Rhino SDK, execute the shell script in the RhinoSDK folder.
