Service Start Up – Automatic (Delayed) July 15, 2009

Posted by Duncan in Administration, Infrastructure, Windows.

I’ve been spending a little time putting together a VM using Windows Server 2008 and was pleasantly surprised to see that there is a new start-up type when configuring the PIA, App Server and Process Scheduler to start as services.

As well as Automatic, Manual and Disabled, there is now an Automatic (Delayed) option.

David Kurtz has spoken about using service dependencies, but I just want my App Server and Process Scheduler to start after the intial flurry of start-up activity has finished and everything else has calmed down.

Services that have a delayed start still start automatically, they just wait until all the services that aren’t delayed to finish before firing up.

It works a treat!

I’m using this too. Even when using service dependencies between the WebLogicAdmin and PIA services I was having the problem where the PIA starts too fast and then can’t “find” the management service which causes the “This server is being started in managed server independence mode in the absence of the admin server” note in the log. Setting the PIA service to “Automatic (Delayed)” without the dependency seems to resolve that.
