16.5 What can I do if the Service is not running?

The Dynamic File Service must be running before you can connect to and manage the server with the Management Console and the DswCLI.exe command. The Service starts automatically after the install and when you restart the server, except when the server starts in Windows Safe Mode. You can verify that the Service is running by viewing the status displayed in the Service Controller menu in the notification area or by looking for the DswService.exe process in the Windows Task Manager or the Windows Computer Management tool.

To start the Service, see Section 6.4, Starting and Stopping the Service.
