To run OAS as a service on Linux view how to Setup OAS Engine as a Linux Service or Daemon.
After you install the Windows version of OAS use the OAS Service Control application to start the OAS Service, OAS Data Service, and OAS Database Service if they are not already started.
These services will automatically start when you restart your computer unless you set the startup type to Manual for each of the services.
You can optionally Start Runtime here also or later in the example. All modifications are allowed during Runtime except loading a Tag configuration file.
You can add, delete, and modify Tags, Data Logging Groups, Alarm Logging Groups, Alarm Notification Groups, Recipes, Reports, Security Groups, and Security Users during Runtime.
