How do I control the collector in DOS?|
First, open a DOS command prompt.|
To change to the correct directory, enter the following DOS commands:
The following commands control the collector as an application:
dsc start use this command if you want to use ViewPoint as an application
dsc stop use this command if you started ViewPoint as an application
The following commands control the collector as a service:
dsc SERVICE start use this command if you want to use ViewPoint as a service
dsc SERVICE stop use this command if you started ViewPoint as a service
NOTE: The SERVICE command is case sensitive.
You can also start the collector in what is known as "debug" mode. This will log more detailed errors to the log files located in the vpnt43\log directory.
To use this command:
dsc -dc start -or-
dsc -dc SERVICE start
When you are stopping the collector, if it is in debug mode you do not have to add the -dd, -dc, or -ds. Simply type dsc stop or dsc SERVICE stop.
