Creating Windows services (dbsvc utility)

You can create a Windows service using the dbsvc utility.


There are no prerequisites for this task.

Contexte et remarques

Each database server can run more than one database. When you run more than one database at a time, it is recommended that you do so by adding new databases to your existing Windows service, rather than by creating new services.

  • Run the Service utility (dbsvc) with the -w option.


A new Windows service is created.


The following command creates a Windows service called myserv where the database server runs as the LocalSystem user.

dbsvc -as -w myserv "C:\Program Files\SQL Anywhere 16\Bin32\dbsrv16.exe"
 -n william -c 8m "c:\temp\sample.db"
