The Host Task List has two options for stopping and starting a service on a host. When you stop a service using the Stop Service message, all processes of the service are stopped and users connecting to the service are disconnected. Unless there is a problem with the service, it restarts automatically. This is the same as the Shutdown Service option in the Services System View.

If a service does not restart automatically after being stopped, you can restart it manually using the Start Service message.

Stop a Service on a Host

  1. In the Security Analytics menu, select Administration >Services.
  2. In the Services grid, select a service and Actns.png > View> System.
    The System view for the service is displayed.
  3. In the Services System view toolbar, click Host Tasks.
  4. In the Host Task List, click Stop Service.
    The task is displayed in the Task field, and information about the task is displayed in the info area.
