Restarting CMS services without rebooting

As a quick tip in addition to Richard’s comment on “To kill a publication“, there is an easy way to stop/restart all CMS processes without rebooting your server:

@echo off
echo y | net stop RdIiceService
echo y | net stop RDCMSStarterService
echo y | net stop DataService
echo y | net stop ObjectService
echo y | net stop RDInteropService2
echo All CMS services stopped. Please check your server's running processes.
echo y | net start RdIiceService
echo y | net start RDCMSStarterService
echo y | net start DataService
echo y | net start ObjectService
echo y | net start RDInteropService2

Save this file as restart_reddot.cmd. Once you stopped the processes, you should check your running processes if all of them where shut down correctly before restarting them.

  1. I think the DataService should be stopped before the ObjectService. There is a dependencie returning a message which says so.
    And I am not sure, if it’s necessary to stop or start the RDCMSStarterService, because I think (guess) the purpose of this is to start the others and then stop.
    Anyway, I like the idea and I’m already playing around with it.

  2. What version does this require? I just tried it on a CMS Version 6.5 Build without any luck :( Same goes for Part II
