Since Windows Server 2008 R2 (and Windows 7 I think for the client OS) Microsoft has introduced
trigger start for services. I do understand difference between
automatic (delayed) and
manual startup types. From what I read on googled articles, I believe I do understand logic of
trigger start (though never used that).
What I'm not really sure I understand would be difference of services that are configured to
automatic (trigger start) and
manual (trigger start) and I had no luck to find any explanation for this.
I am sort of thinking that in both cases service is not running unless trigger will start it, so what would be the difference actually?
Reason I have encountered this question is actually monitoring of automatic startup type services. Since the service is set to start with trigger and trigger is not valid, service is not running and monitoring is reporting it the way, that automatic service is not running.
To sum up - my questions are:
- What is difference between
automatic (trigger start)and
manual (trigger start)service?
- Can it have any impact to service/application (in general) if service will be switched from
automatic (trigger start)to
manual (trigger start)?
