Depending on Service / Delayed start

I have 2 servers where a service on one of them can not start until a certain service on the other has started. Is it possible to set this using the DependOnService registry setting?

If not, is there any way to increase the default 2 minute setting for Delayed Startup? I need at least 10 minutes to make sure all services are running on the other server.

Thanks,
Rayner

I don't think so to either.  You'll likely have to write a script or something to start the second service.

If these are services you can set dependencies and recovery options (you can set the time) in that service  properties.
(just open services.msc)

Alternatively: Set a new task to start the service xx minutes after restart.
Hope that helps,
Olaf
