IBM WebSphere - Autostart WebSphere on Windows using WasService.exe

Updated:   |  IBM WebSphere articles

WasService.exe can be used to configure WebSphere as a Windows Service so that WebSphere is automatically started when the Windows Operating System is restarted.

In this example, a service will be created to start the application server named AppSrv01 as part of Windows startup.

"C:\Program Files\IBM\WebSphere\AppServer\bin\WasService.exe" 
-add AppSrv01
-servername AppSrv01
-wasHome     "C:\Program Files\IBM\WebSphere\AppServer"
-profilePath "C:\Program Files\IBM\WebSphere\AppServer\profiles\AppSrv01"
-logRoot     "C:\Program Files\IBM\WebSphere\AppServer\profiles\AppSrv01\logs"
-logFile AppSrvName_startup.log 
-startType Automatic
-stopArgs "-username adminUserName -password adminPassword" 
-restart true 
-encodeParams 

 

The status command should now return something like this.

> "C:\Program Files\IBM\WebSphere\AppServer\bin\WasService.exe -status AppSrv01"
Service is running

 

If needed, you can remove the service.

> "C:\Program Files\IBM\WebSphere\AppServer\bin\WasService.exe -remove AppSrv01"
Service is running

 

The Services console can be opened by running services.msc and there should be a service for IBM WebSphere.
