Start and Stop the AGPM Service
The AGPM Service is a Windows service that acts as a security proxy, managing client access to Group Policy objects (GPOs) in the archive and production environment.
Stopping or disabling the AGPM Service will prevent AGPM clients from performing any operations (such as listing or editing GPOs) through the server.
A user account with access to the AGPM Server (the computer on which the AGPM Service is installed) is required to complete this procedure.
To start or stop the AGPM Service
On the computer on which Microsoft Advanced Group Policy Management - Server (and therefore the AGPM Service) is installed, click Start, click Control Panel, click Administrative Tools, and then click Services.
In the list of services, right-click AGPM Service and select Start, Restart, or Stop.
Do not modify settings for the AGPM Service through Administrative Tools and Services in the operating system. Doing so can prevent the AGPM Service from starting. To modify settings for the service, see Managing the AGPM Service.
