How can Identity Access Manager and VS Catalog be installed as Windows Services? DevTest server is rebooted every weekend. We want IAM and VSCatalog to automatically restart. How can we do that?
Identity Access Manager and VSCatalog cannot be installed as a windows service and this is by design. We have a workaround to automatically start up the .exe file
Enable “.exe” file to run at StartUp
Here is a ref: pointer on how to do it -
The below context is available on the site mentioned above:
Add a Link to the Startup Folder
Click the Windows "Start" button and select "All Programs." Right-click the "Startup" folder in the menu and select "Open All Users." This option opens the folder for all users on the computer. Choose "Explore" to open the folder for the currently logged-in user only.
Right-click the folder or file you want started when the computer boots. Select "Copy Shortcut" from the menu.
Right-click any white space in the "Startup" folder opened in Step 1. Select "Paste" from the menu list. The program will now open the next time you start the computer.
Change Current Startup Programs
Click the Windows "Start" button and type "msconfig" in the search textbox. This opens the System Configuration console.
Click the "Startup" tab. This gives you a view of all the programs installed as a startup option on your computer.
Check boxes of the applications you want to start when you boot the computer. For programs you no longer want to start, clear the checkbox.
Click "Apply" and close the configuration window. A popup window asks if you want to reboot the computer. Click "Restart" to reboot the computer and save the changes.
Note ** :
To configure logging to go to a file a user can add an application.yml file to the home directory of the install directory.
Here is a good example for configuring logging file:
