Certain operations may require you to start or stop a service on the Metasys Server. These operations include, but are not limited to, the maintenance, restore, and rename functions in the Metasys Database Manager. Error scenarios may also require to start, stop, or restart a service on the Metasys Server. Beginning at Metasys Release 10.0, batch files are available for stopping, starting, and restarting the Metasys Server services without requiring a restart of the host computer. When you use these batch files to stop Metasys Server services, no data is lost because the data is sent to the appropriate queues (confirm and/or list queues).
