This topic describes the various options of the SC command with the Create command option.
The SC command communicates with the Windows Service Controller and installed services. When used with its create command option, you can use it to create a Windows service under which the Endeca Server will run.
sc create serviceName binpath= "path\to\service-wrapper-7.4.exe" optionName= optionValue...
|type= <serviceType>||The type of service to be created. Use the own parameter value, which means the service runs in its own process. It does not share an executable file with other services. This is the default for the sc create command. Note that other service types are available, but you should use the own value.|
|start= <startType>||The start type for the service:
|error= <errorSeverity>||The severity of error if the service does
not start during boot:
|group= <loadOrderGroup>||Name of group of which this service is a member. The list of groups are stored in the registry under the ServiceGroupOrder key. Default is null.|
|tag= yes|no||Do not use this parameter as tags are used only for device driver service types.|
|depend= <dependencies>||Names of services or groups that must start before this service. Each name is separated by / (forward slash).|
|obj= <accountName>||Name of the account under in the service will run. The specified account must exist and must be a valid account. Default is LocalSystem.|
|password= <password>||Password of the obj account. A password is required if an account other than the LocalSystem account is used.|
|displayname= <displayName>||A friendly, meaningful name that can be used in user-interface programs to identify the service to users. For example, if the service name is ESService, you can specify Oracle Endeca Server as the display name so that will be more meaningful when shown in the Windows Services Control Manager.|
sc create EndecaServer displayname= "Oracle Endeca Server" type= own error= severe obj= "CORPDEV\EndecaUser" password= banx912 binpath= "C:\Oracle\Endeca\Server\7.4.0\endeca-server\service-wrapper-7.4.exe"
For ease of use, you can place the command in a batch script.
