Managed Computer

If a managed server crashes and is restored, you will not have to re-register. However, you may need to Stop and start BOS service and from the Activity monitor discover active launcher and update launcher data)

(Even if you delete and re-register, historical data, i.e. trending, will not be lost, as long as the full name of the object remains unchanged)

You can create a script file that will stop and start the services using a .bat file. The following services should be included in the script file.

Echo "Starting BSRM Services"
net start "Pervasive.SQL (relational)" (bsrm does not use this service)
net start "Pervasive.SQL (transactional)"
net start "CA BrightStor SRM Trap"
net start "CA BrightStor SRM Scheduler"
net start "CA BrightStor SRM GNS"
net start "CA BrightStor SRM BOS"
# net start "CA BrightStor SRM Application Server (remove the # sign if your BSRM is running as windows service mode)

Echo "Stopping BSRM Services"
