Perform the following steps to register the server as a service:

  1. Stop the server with bin/stop-server. A server cannot be registered while it is running.
  2. Register the server as a service. From a Windows command prompt, run bat/register-windows-service.bat.
  3. After a server is registered, start the server from the Windows Services Control Panel or with the bat/start-server.bat command.

    Command-line arguments for the start-server.bat and stop-server.bat scripts are not supported while the server is registered to run as a Windows service. Using a task to stop the server is also not supported.
