Configuring Windows services

A Windows service runs database servers or other applications with a set of options and properties, including the properties that specify the account under which the service runs and the conditions under which it starts.


There are no prerequisites for this task.

Context and remarks

Changes to a service configuration take effect the next time someone starts the service.

  1. In Sybase Central, use the SQL Anywhere 16 plug-in to connect to the database.

  2. In the left pane, click SQL Anywhere 16.

  3. In the right pane, click the Services tab.

  4. Right-click the service you want to configure and click Properties.

  5. Alter the properties as needed on the tabs of the Service Properties window.

  6. Click OK when finished.


The properties for the service are altered. The Startup property is applied the next time Windows is started.
