INF: Stopping an SQL Server ID Number: Q59036

1.10 1.11 4.20 OS/2


Depending on how the SQL server was started, different STOP commands can stop an SQL server.

If the start command is NET START SQLSERVER, the command NET STOP SERVER will not stop the SQL server. The SQL server will remain running, but can only be accessed locally. The NET STOP WORKSTATION command will stop the SQL server.

If the SQL server was started as part of the srvservices list in the LANMAN.INI (srvservices = sqlserver, …), the NET STOP SERVER command WILL stop the SQL server.

In both cases, the SQL error log reports a shutdown due to the “uninstall command,” as it normally does when you issue a NET STOP SQLSERVER.
