Jet Data Manager Scheduler Service

During the installation of Jet Data Manager, a new service is installed on the local machine that controls the execution packages. You will need to configure this service to start automatically. To configure the service, open the Services window for the server. This is generally accessed using the Start menu by typing Services in the search bar and selecting Services from the list that is returned.

  • Right click the Jet Data Manager Scheduler service and select Properties.
  • On the General tab, the Startup Type should be set to Automatic (Delayed Start). If this is not available due to older versions of Windows Server, then Automatic should be selected.
  • On the Log On tab, a service account should be used. Click Browse to add an account.
  • In the next window select Location and add service account. The service account can be checked from command prompt by typing whoami
  • Service account is added. Now you need to enter your Windows Password.
  • Right click the Jet Data Manager Server Scheduler service and click Start.  The service should start normally.

If you receive a message that the service started and then stopped, the most common cause is that the JDM configuration files have not been created for service account that was specified to start the service.  The proper solution is to log on to the server using this service account, open the Jet Data Manager, and point to the project repository when prompted.  This will create the configuration files required by the service account.

You can now log off and log back on as the original user.  You should now be able to properly start the service.  For more details see: Troubleshooting Execution Packages by Insightsoftware.
