Using a Windows Batch File

If you prefer to start and stop the Connections services manually create a windows service (as per the instructions here) for the Deployment Manager, Node Agents and each Connections Server.

Create a windows batch file to call the Windows services using the NET START command

REM **** Example of start servers batch file ****
@echo off
echo Starting DeploymentManager
NET START "IBMWAS80Service - Dmgr"
echo Starting NodeAgent
NET START "IBMWAS80Service - Node"
echo Starting server Cubey
NET START "IBMWAS80Service - Cubey"
echo Servers started now exiting

A start of the servers can then be achieved by running the batch file. The Windows services are started in turn.


A similar windows batch file can be created to stop all of the windows services.
