How to start and stop OMS
OMS runs as a Windows service. Start and stop the program using the Windows Services Control Manager.
The OMS starts automatically at system start. OMS is designed to be always running, as such it is ideally suited to be installed as Windows service. Typically, the only interaction most users will have with OMS is through its web interface. However, it is not possible to start, stop, or restart OMS through the web interface.
OMS requires two Windows services: its own and a web server. Both must be running. They run with Local System account privileges.
1. Choose Start > Control Panel > System and Security > Administrative Tools > Services.
2. Select Network Instruments Management Server Service and choose to Stop the service.
 
The service starts (or stops). If you are having any issues, first check the log events and secondly the Windows Event Viewer for details.
