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.

Typically it's MSSQL$SELECTSERVER.

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.
