You can use the Restart services functionality in Microsoft Dynamics Lifecycle Services (LCS) to restart individual services that are associated with a Tier 2, Tier 3, Tier 4, or Tier 5 standard acceptance test (sandbox) environment that is deployed in a Microsoft subscription. You can use this functionality to restart the following services:
- LCS Diagnostics
- Reporting Server
Any user who has been added as a project owner, organization admin, or environment manager in an LCS project has permissions to use this functionality.
To restart a specific service in a deployed environment, follow these steps.
- In LCS, open the appropriate project, and select the environment to restart the service for.
- On the Environment details page, select Maintain > Restart services.
- In the Restart a service dialog box, select the service to restart, and then select OK.The Environment state value is updated when the service is restarted.
- To view the updated status, refresh the page. NoteBecause restart of a service might require only a few seconds, the Environment state value might already have been reset to Deployed. When the restart is completed, an entry is added to the History page.
To stop and start all services, use the Stop menu option followed by the Start option on the environment details page.
This functionality is only available in Tier-2+ Sandbox environments and not in the production environment.
