SELECTserver Auto-Restart after reboot

Tired of your SELECTserver not restarting after reboot?  Try setting a Dependancy on your SQL Server Service.  It's easier than you think!

Here's what you do...

Find the name of the service for SQL Server on the machine.


Then Log on to the SELECTserver machine as a system administrator and type the following in the command prompt:

sc config “Bentley SELECT Server” depend= MSSQL$SELECTSERVER

Afterwards check that service Bentley SELECTserver would have a dependency on MS SQL database engine service (in Properties -> Dependencies). Rename last word in command with the correct service name if it didn't appear.

After the reboot of the server BSS service will automatically start from now on.
