About managing services

The Manage Services page lets you start, stop, or restart certain services on an appliance. Each task of the workflow is listed at the top of the page. After you complete a task and move to the next one, the page refreshes with the details and the column headings that pertain to the next step.

The details and column headings for each task on the Manage Services page are as follows:

  1. Confirm appliance selection

    • Selected appliances (n) The host name of each appliance and the total number of selected appliances.

    • Version The current software version on the selected appliance.

  2. Select action and service

    • Action type selection The action to be performed: Start, Stop, or Restart.

    • {OPTION 2} Service type selection The type of service to be started, stopped, or restarted: NetBackup services, Appliance infrastructure services, or a specific service that you mention by its name. You cannot start or stop an individual service, but you can restart a single service at a time by specifying its name.

      If any selected services are already started or stopped, and you select Start or Stop, for those services respectively, no action is taken. Information messages are logged and displayed in the Activity Monitor accordingly.

      The Appliance Management Console does not let you restart any appliance infrastructure services if the appliance that you selected is registered as AMS and not as an agent. Similarly, it does not let you restart amsagent service as well.

  3. Confirm and submit

    • Hostname The host name of each appliance and the total number of listed appliances.

    • Version The current software version of the appliance.

    • Selected action and service The name of the specified services and the action to be performed on those services.
