mps-service

Create or modify a Windows service for a server instance

Description

mps-service [-C [path/]server_name] create [--name name] [--description description] [--user user] [--password password] [--noprompt] creates a Windows® service for the server instance.

The Windows service default settings are:

  • Service Display Name: MATLAB Production Server – path\server_name

  • Service Description: MATLAB Production Server running instance path\server_name

  • Service User: LocalSystem

The Windows service is configured to start when the machine starts, not at creation of the service. After you have made configuration changes, start the server instance using mps-start.

mps-service [-C [path/]server_name] update [--name name] [--description description] [--user user] [--password password] [--instance-root new_path] [--noprompt] updates the Windows service entry for the server instance.

mps-service [-C [path/]server_name] delete deletes the Windows service entry for the server instance.

mps-service delete service_name [[--force]|[-f]] deletes the Windows service entry by name.

mps-service clean [[--force]|[-f]][[--verbose]|[-v]] deletes invalid Windows service entries.

Invalid Windows service entries are entries where either the target version of MATLAB® Production Server™ is not present or the associated server instance no longer exists.

mps-service [-C [path/]server_name] undelete restores the deleted Windows service entry for the server instance.

mps-service [-C [path/]server_name] displays the Windows service entry for the server instance.

mps-service list lists the Windows service entries for all server instances.
