The two services listed below are used by Orchid Core VMS on Windows. If you need to check the status, start, or stop one of these services, you can do this through the Services Manager whenever necessary. (You will need to restart the appropriate service whenever a change has been made to one of Orchid Core VMS’s configuration files.)

  • Orchid Server Service: The main Orchid Core VMS service that records and archives video.
  • Orchid ONVIF Auto-Discovery Service: Used by Orchid Core VMS to automatically find cameras that support ONVIF.

To manage an Orchid Core VMS service:

  1. Open the Windows Start Menu and type Services into the search bar, or go to Windows Administrative Tools.
  2. Click the Services icon to open the Services Manager. The Services Manager will display a list of all the services setup in Windows.

  1. Scroll through the list and click on the service you need to restart. (Notice that the status of the service will appear in the Status column.)
  2. Click the Restart the service button (at the left of the list of services). (Click the Stop the Service link if you need to stop the service.)

A status window will appear to show the progress of the restart. Once the service has restarted successfully, the software will return to the Services Manager window; the Status column will indicate that the service is Running.
