Is there a suggested order for stopping and/or starting services in ITSM 5x and 6x?

    Details

    If we want to stop and/or start services on our application server what is the suggested order?

    This capability may be needed if  performing actions such as restoring our database.

     


    Resolution

    Stopping services:

    -------------------------
    You can stop services in any order but generally you will stop the License Server last.
    Note that if you need to restore your DB you will also need to stop IIS (World Wide Web Publishing Service)

    Starting Services:
    ------------------------
    1. Start the License Server
    2. Start the remainder of the FrontRange Services.
    3. Perform an IISreset
    4. You may wish to monitor the event viewer as you start the FrontRange services to assure that no unexpected errors are encountered.
