Remark: This blogpost is part of a series of blog posts explaining Royal Server and the new connection types we have introduced in Royal TS V3 for Windows and Royal TSX V2 for OS X. Here is a complete list of our blog post series:
With Royal Server, you can manage Windows Services directly from OS X – without opening an RDP connection, firing up services.msc, miscellaneous scrolling around, etc.
Remark: To manage Windows Services, Royal TSX needs a Royal Server installation. This blogpost explains how to quickly install and configure it.
The basic configuration only needs a Computer Name:
Additionally, you specify an account on the machine where you want to manage the Windows Services.
When you connect, you get all the installed Windows Services with their status and additional information.
Using the quick filter in the Toolbar, you can further drill down.
With the Toolbar or the Context Menu, you can Start, Stop or Restart one or multiple services.
Right-clicking on the column headers offers more options: you can view/hide more columns (e.g. Process ID) and filter based on the content of the column.
And of course, all the mentioned features work identically on Royal TS (for Windows).
