The operation of View Connection Server instances and security servers depends on several services that run on the system. You might sometimes find it necessary to stop and start these services manually when troubleshooting problems with the operation of View.

When you stop View services, end users cannot log in to their desktops. You should perform such an action at a time that is already scheduled for system maintenance, or warn end users that their desktops will be unavailable temporarily.

Note

Stop only the VMware View Connection Server service on a View Connection Server host or the VMware View Security Server service on a security server. Do not stop any other component services.

Familiarize yourself with the services that run on View Connection Server hosts and security servers as described in Services on a View Connection Server Host and Services on a Security Server.

1

Start the Windows Services tool by entering services.msc at the command prompt.

2

Select the VMware View Connection Server service on a View Connection Server host or the VMware View Security Server service on a security server, and click Stop, Restart, or Start as appropriate.

3

Verify that the status of the listed service changes as expected.
