Websense services start and stop sequence

Occasionally you may need to stop/start/restart the Websense components. E.g. if you edit any Websense *.ini files, you must stop and then restart services to implement any changes or backup Websense configuration files.

If you are stopping or starting multiple services, stop Policy Server last, and start it first.

For example:

Stop services in the following order:

  • Other Websense Services (DC Agent, Explorer Report Scheduler, Log Server, Real-Time Analyzer, Reporter Scheduler, Usage Monitor)
  • Network Agent (this service may be on a separate machine)
  • Filtering Service
  • User Service
  • Policy Server

Start services in the following order:

  • Policy Server
  • User Service
  • Filtering Service
  • Network Agent
  • Other Websense Services (DC Agent, Explorer Report Scheduler, Log Server, Real-Time Analyzer, Reporter Scheduler, Usage Monitor)
