Is there a way to restart DRM app through a cmd script instead of manually going into the Console and restart it there? I need to do this on a nightly basis as a requirement and I would hate to wake up at 2 AM every night to do it myself :) Thank you!!
If your batch processes are using a domain account that has administrative access on the DRM primary app server, you can bounce the service from a script easily. I've done this with 11.1.1, which only has one application, so bouncing the service was all there was to it.
However, with 11.1.2, bouncing the service would bring down all DRM applications running on that server, which could be very a bad thing. And, one you restart the service I don't believe you can start an application with a web service call since you have to have an application context to make a the web service call in the first place, i.e. the application has to be started already. Better would be to start and stop just an application from a script, but to my knowledge the only way to start the application is through the console in 11.1.2. I haven't looked into this deeply though...
