What service can I restart instead of a reboot
Posted on 2013-01-09
I have a VSS issue with my Exchange 2010 servers. The fix I have found is to remove a ,bak subtree in the registry here ---> HKey_Local_Machine\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\ProfileList. There is a .bak in there and that is the sid that the VSS 8193 event error is referencing in the details tab of the event error.
The question is, the fix is to restart the offending maching after removing the .bak. These are production Exchange servers and I would like to know if I can just restart a service instead of having to reboot the machine... These servers are members of a DAG and I would rather not have to reboot if I can simply restart a service to acknowledge the removal of this registry entry...
