FAQ: Is it possible to run zenon Report Engine as a service?
Most of the components of the zenon Report Engine are running as a service. These are:
- SQL-Server (MSSQL$ZA2019)
- Reporting Services (ReportServer$ZA2019)
- SQL-Server Agent$ZA2019 for scheduled tasks
- License Service (zrsLicSrv).
Only the Service Engine Connector (must run in the same user context as the zenon Service Engine) and the zenon Reporting Studio are not running as a service.
Components which run as a service have no user interaction (e.g. no graphical user-interface, no message boxes, etc..). The component still works even if no user is logged onto the computer.
