Support Policy for Windows Services on DxEnterprise
DH2i support policy for Microsoft Windows services on DxEnterprise.
DxEnterprise supports service health monitoring and start/stop orchestration for any Windows services. The following are the supported features for Windows services:
Ensure the service is set to manual-start
Ensure the service is stopped on all nodes, except the active node
Ensure the service is running on the active node
If the HealthMonitor notices the service is not in the active (or running) state on the active node for the Vhost, a failover will be initiated automatically to allow the service to become active on another node in the cluster
Additional (optional) features are:
Allows the service to be run under the physical node name or the Vhost name
Allows monitoring and replication of a single registry hive to persist registry changes associated with the service to all nodes under the Vhost
Allows advanced scripting (Pre-start, Post-start, Pre-stop and Post-stop) to facilitate additional functionality
Allows performance monitoring for the service
DxEnterprise manages and orchestrates any Windows services unconditionally therein it follows the guidelines above. DxEnterprise is completely agnostic to the Windows services’ configuration and/or user data.
For additional information please see the Services section of the DxEnterprise Administration Guide.
