How to Start/Stop the DMExpress Service

Article #: Product: Version:


The DMExpress Service must be running on any DMExpress Server to which you wish to connect from a DMExpress GUI to submit tasks and jobs for execution, to view server statistics, or to browse files in a multi-locale environment. A DMExpress Workstation has no service.

When necessary, the service can be started/stopped as follows:


When stopping the service, any currently running jobs will lose connection and may or may not complete successfully upon service restart. Any jobs scheduled to start while the service is down will not be executed, but once the service is restarted, all remaining scheduled jobs will proceed accordingly.

As a best practice, it is recommended to wait until running jobs are completed before stopping the service.
