In some cases it is useful to start your Virtualize infrastructure automatically or as part of a recovery process. Virtualize and CTP are web applications and can be run as a tomcat service. DataRepositoryServer needs to be started manually. In this post I will demonstrate how to launch DataRepository as a windows service

Install DataRepository as a Windows service

  • Download NSSM
  • https://nssm.cc/download
  • Put it in the Parasoft top level directory
  • edit Path, add C:\Program Files\Parasoft\
  • Go to CMD as administrator
    • type nssm install ParasoftDataRepositoryService
    • Path: datarepository executable
    • Startup Directory: same as above
    • Arguments: start
    • Click InstallService

Start the service

  • Start Menu > Administrative tools > Services
  • Find ParasoftDataRepositoryService
  • Right Click on the service > Start
  • Optional, set Recovery to Restart on failure

Verify Data Repository has started

  • Go into TDM
  • Verify your repository is present

If it is not there check logs in "DataRepositoryServer"\DataRepositoryServer-win-x86_64\logs
