Why don't the above commands work? What happens?

If you were expecting a process to be running after running those commands, and that process is not running, is it crashing? Is the OS creating crash logs in the usual directory? If so, show us one. Or, if no crash logs, does the Console indicate that the process is being restarted every 10 seconds and immediately quitting itself? Does the process write its own log file, and if so, does it contain anything explaining why it isn't staying running?

I'm not sure what the documentation about how to share archives between machines has to do with your present problem.
