Starting and Stopping the Runtime Service

Which procedure you use to start the Runtime Service depends on the environment in which you are working. In Windows, you can run the service either as a Windows service or in application mode. In UNIX, you can run the service as a daemon in the background.

Note For a run-time server to be available to run the tasks associated with it, it must be both registered and enabled. To do this, in the left pane of the MCS management console, under Deployments, then Tasks, select Register Runtimes.
