You will need java in your environment to be able to run the esm utility successfully.
When you execute either the esm.sh or esm.bat script, you will be prompted for the hostname or IP address of the EAS server to connect to. This will then launch ESM, and you will then be prompted for the admin credentials, which for EAS should be admin and the password that was configured for the dbauser at EAS installation time.
