How to Automate Start and Stop Teamcenter Services using a Script | Up to Teamcenter 16.3 & Active Workspace 6.3

Updated: May 20

One of the most common activities for a System Administrator working with Teamcenter and Active Workspace is to start and stop Teamcenter Services using a script in the environment. It is a repeated task that deserves automation.


1st, create a script named _runTc.cmd and place it on the server desktop and execute with administrative rights.

Note. Starting and stopping services requires administrative rights, therefore that is the first thing to verify.

After validating the script is running with administrative rights, we need to present a menu where the administrator can choose to start or stop the services for the environment.


Once the administrator makes a choice then we perform the necessary tasks to complete that choice. I use the display name of the service (in quotes) for clarity instead of the service name which may not be clear.


The _runTc.cmd script is defined (below).

Note. you may download the file below. The downloaded file will be a .zip file. Extract the .zip file to find the _runTc.cmd file. The code in the file is the same as in the example below.

Tip. Modify this script for the services that you are actually running in both the net start and net stop locations for each service.

Now you can simply right-click the script and select "Run as administrator". Enjoy!
