Why does PDMEssentials have a "ServiceTool" script to create Windchill, Apache and Directory Service services, but Windchill does not? Anything that saves a bit of time when doing Windchill installs/configuration is appreciated.
From the PDMEssentials documentation:
17. After validating the target system, use the ServiceTool utility to recreateWindows services for Apache, Windchill Directory Server, and Windchill:a. Stop Apache, Windchill Directory Server, and Windchill servers.b. In a Windows command prompt, navigate to the following location, where<Installation> is the Windchill PDM Essentials installer folder:<Installation>\Scriptsc. Execute the following command, where <Windchill> is the location ofyour new target Windchill PDM Essentials installation: ServiceTool<Windchill>\Windchill
Not saying a tool wouldn't be nice, but it's actually pretty easy to do now from a Windchill shell:
Install Windchill Directory Server as a service:- Use the DS control panel(Service name = PTC Windchill Directory Server")
Install Webserver (Apache) as a service:cd E:\ptc\Windchill_11.0\HTTPServer\binhttpd -k install -n "PTC Windchill Web Server"
Install Windchill Method Server as a service:cd E:\ptc\Windchill_11.0\Windchillant -buildfile opt\ntservice\WindchillService.xml install -DserviceName="PTC Windchill Method Server"
Add startup dependencies to method server service:sc config "PTC Windchill Method Server" depend= "PTCWindchillWebServer"/"PTC Windchill Directory Server"
Note: Adjust the files paths for the version of Windchill being used and installation location.
