Hello All,

We are currently on BO 4.1 SP6 and sized our APS services as per our load.We have a scenario in which we have to start WebIntelligence services(category in CMC->Servers->Categories)alone before our report distribution.Till now we are manually doing the restart of services and in order to automate that using scripts,we need to know the name and path of the exe files present in the BO installation folders.For non APS services like CMS,job server,webi processing server, we are able to find the corresponding exe files(cms.exe,job server.exe,WIreportserver.exe).But for the APS services, all the services are falling under Java.exe. We are not able to segregate the services because its all falling under Java.exe. Kindly share your thoughts on this.

Thanks in advance,

you cannot start BOE services by using their exe files.
SIA is the process that controls them.

Admin guide has command lines that show how to start individual servers from command line.
As well as this KBA
