I'm working in 220.127.116.11 in a distributed environment. When I click the 'Start EPM System' shortcut in the programs menu, it only starts the local services, and not the services on the other two servers. I'm experiencing some other issues with the environment, and I'm wondering what if anything is preventing all the services in the distributed environment from starting up.
So I guess the question is: is this shortcut supposed to start all the services in a distributed environment? In the other environments for the same client this seems to be the case.
Thanks for your time.
It will only start the EPM services on the machine it is being run from, if you want to start services across multiple machines you can develop your own script.
From the docs
"Running the single start script on a machine in your EPM System deployment starts all EPM System services installed on that machine."
