Starting and Stopping the PPM Server on Windows

This section covers starting and stopping the server on a Windows system.

Caution:  If your PPM instance includes multiple nodes in a cluster configuration, you must start these nodes one at a time. Make sure that you wait until each node is fully started before you start the next node.

If your instance is configured as a server cluster and the PPM_SERVER_CONF_DIR environment variable is set, then before you start the PPM Server, you must configure user account logon options for the PPM service. If you do not, the service will not start. (It is only necessary to do this once.)
