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 pause exit
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.
