    Sometimes a core server or an agent may be missing a service, and it is necessary to restore that service. Restoring a service may be more desirable than re-installing. This articles describes how to install and remove various LANDesk Management Suite services on core servers as well as agents.


    Keep in mind that installing services only works if the files necessary to start the service are already in place. Adjust the paths in these commands as necessary.
