Setting Dependencies (or startup order) for Services
Posted on 2004-11-11
I have a Service that uses MS SQL Server as a backend to serve up a database of digital assets.
When the computer is restarted, it seems that sometimes this service starts up before MS SQL Server, cannot find the necessary databases and then is does not serve them up properly.
Now it seems that there is a way that a Service can have Dependencies and that would be just what I need to ensure that the Service starts up AFTER MS SQL Server. However, there seems to be no way to set this in the Services Control Panel.
How can I make sure that this Service does not start until MS SQL Server has completely started?
