Services set to start automatically stop running.

Cause:  When configured to start automatically, a small number of services may stop running if they are not performing any tasks. When this happens, these services are reported in the server performance report as not running. This is known to occur with the following services:

  • Fax
  • Performance Logs and Alerts
  • Removable Storage

Solution:  The noted services are designed to stop running when they are not being used. If you do not want these services to be reported in the server performance report when they are not running, you can change the Startup type for the service to Manual.

To change the startup type for a service to Manual
  1. Click Start, and then click Server Management.

  2. In the console tree, click Monitoring and Reporting, and then click View Services.

  3. In the details pane, right-click the service that you want to change, and then click Properties.

  4. For Startup type, select Manual, and then click OK.
