    stop server with pisrvstop.bat

    benny

      My IT department wants to do maintenance on the PI server and needs to restart the server. They wonder if they can just restart the server (OS-restart) or that stopping and starting the PI services by means of the "pisrvstop/start.bat" is required. I think the latter but to be sure....

          Hi Benny,

           

          We recommend using the pisrvstop.bat before shutting down/restarting the OS. A lot of times end users will just restart the OS and things end up fine on the system, but using the script is another level of safety for us in making sure everything gets shutdown in the correct order. As for starting the PI Server. The services are by default set to automatic startup and already have their dependencies in place, which means that you won't shouldn't need to run the pisrvstart.bat script on a start of the OS.

           

          Cheers,

          Rob

            You can also refer to Start and stop PI Data Archive which discusses startup, shutdown, verification, shutdown events and other matters relating to PI Data Archive services.
