service

Name

netid.exe -service - control the internal user and system service.

Synopsis

netid.exe -service [start <service>]|[restart <service>]|[stop <service>]|
    [refresh]|[pause]|[continue]

Description

The service command controls the internal user and system services. To access the system service requires administrator privileges.

The user service keeps track of the certificates. That is, to register and unregister in CryptoAPI MY store.

Options

start <service>

Start the specified service. Accepted services are user and system. The service value is optional. If no service value is specified, the user rights will control what happens. An ordinary user can only start user services, and administrators can start both user and system services.

restart <service>

Restart the specified service. Accepted services are user and system. The service value is optional. If no service value is specified, the user rights will control what happens. An ordinary user can only start user services, and administrators can start both user and system services.

stop <service>

Stop the specified service. Accepted services are user and system. The service value is optional. If no service value is specified, the user rights will control what happens. An ordinary user can only start user services, and administrators can start both user and system services.

refresh

The refresh option forces an update of the internal status. For example, when a soft token is updated and the update detection is turned off. This is automatically done if updating using our plugin but can be needed when updating with another vendor certificate management system.

pause

Pause the user service operation.

continue

Continue a paused user service operation.
