Start LBL GDG as a Windows service


LBL GDG
 can be performed as an unmanned service and as such has may need to be launched automatically at system startup. In order to be able to carry out this operation in systems based on MS Windows (x86 or x64) it is necessary to carry out these operations:

РDownload the resource kit from the site www.microsoft.com

– Execute the downloaded file and go to the directory obtained es.:

C:\Windows Resource Kits\Tools

РPerform in dependence of the release of wiondows:

   Windows 2003 or less:

> instsrv.exe “LBL(r)Monitor” ” C:\Windows Resource¬†Kits\Tools\srvany.exe”

   Windows 2008 or higher (cmd  LBL_HOME/legacyBin/Windows/LBLLoadBalancerSrv.bat):

> SC created “LBL(r)Monitor¬†binPath”= ” C:\Windows Resource Kits\Tools\srvany.exe”

– Check with “Administrative¬†Tools” and “Services” the correct entry in the table services

РWith regedit go on (reg LBL_HOME/legacyBin/Windows/LBLLoadBalancerSrv.reg):

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LBL(r)Monitor

…And verify the exact creation



– Take the file example configuration:

(LBL_HOME)/legacyBin/Windows/LBLLoadBalancerSrv.reg

РEdit (LBL_HOME)/legacyBin/Windows/LBLLoadBalancerSrv.reg

– Modify the contents of file example¬†LBLLoadBalancerSrv.reg¬†with the absolute position of the¬†Java Virtual Machine and the home directory of¬†LBL¬ģGDG:

“Application”=”¬†C:\\TCOProject\\bin\\Java\\jdk1.8.0_144\\bin\\java.exe”

“AppDirectory”=”C:\\LBL___HOMEDIR___”

– Run the file “LBLLoadBalancerSrv.reg”


Check with regedit the correct insertion of the values in

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\LBL(r)Monitor

On services change the¬†user id¬†and the password will be associated with the process with “Administrator

Run the start of service:


РAt this point LBL GDG was started. From the Monitor it is possible to perform all the operations start / stop of the processes related to LBL GDG.

РTo remove the service before the stop from Web Conosole processes of balancing and then run the stop of the Windows service concerning LBL GDG. Once the stop of the service LBL GDG type:

Windows 2003 or less:

¬†¬†¬†> instsrv.exe “LBL(r)Monitor”¬†remove

   Windows 2008 or higher:

¬† ¬†> SC¬†remove¬†“LBL(r)Monitor”

LBL_WINPXXXYYYXXX_PATCH.zip

Once the patch distribution is sufficient to stand in the machine windows where there is the installation and run the unzip inside the directory C:\TCOProject

The result must be the following (with the numbering on the release discharged):

Once you unzip open window command prompt in the directory patch:

And run the batch:

LBL_UPDATE_FROM_0XX0XX0XX_TO_0YY0YY0YY_LastBuild.bat
