Start & Stop BI Services in Command Prompt

Most of the time to start or stop the services we are going to services window and doing stopping, starting or restarting the BI Services. But we can start any services from command Prompt also.

If we are working in OBIEE 10g there are following four services are running to work with.
1. Oracle BI Java Host
2. Oracle BI Server
3. Oracle Presentation Server
4. Oracle BI Scheduler
so In this post, we are going to know how to start/stop services using command prompt

To open command prompt there are two ways
1. Start, point to All programs, point to Accessories, and then click Command Prompt
2. Start -> Select 'Run' -> Type 'cmd' and click 'OK'
So the command prompt window will be opened. 

Start the Services:
Type the below command to start the BI Services in command prompt
Syntax: C:\ net start service_name
E.g.  C:\ net start "Oracle BI Java Host"
        C:\ net start "Oracle BI Server"
        C:\ net start "Oracle BI Presentation Server"
        C:\ net start "Oracle BI Scheduler"

Stop the Services:
Type the below command to stop the BI Services in command prompt
Syntax: C:\ net stop service_name
E.g. C:\ net stop "Oracle BI Java Host"
       C:\ net stop "Oracle BI Server"
       C:\ net stop "Oracle BI Presentation Server"
       C:\ net stop "Oracle BI Scheduler"

Refer the below screenshot for reference:

*  Through command prompt we are not having any option to restart the services
If the service name is single word or not having space then we can type the command   
   without quotes
    E.g. C:\ net start mysql
*  command is not case-sensitive, so we can write command like below also
     C:\net start "oracle bi server"
*  There are two more option like 'pause' and continue'. Pause will help us to pause the 

    service and continue will help us to resume the paused services.
    E.g. C:\ net pause mysql
           C:\ net continue mysql

Happy Blogging,

  1. Hi! Your article is simple yet very useful. Thanks for this. Have you encountered the error "The service could not be controlled in its present state" ? I encountered it when I try to stop the Oracle BI Server
