Running the Nexus IQ Server as a Service on Windows

This knowledge base article provides instructions for running the Nexus IQ Server as a service under Windows.  If you want to run the Nexus IQ Server as a service on Linux please see our installation guide.

  1. Before beginning, make sure you have the latest Java version 7 from Oracle installed on the target system.
  2. Extract the file attached below.
  3. Replace the extracted conf/config.yml with the config.yml file from current Nexus IQ server installation (be sure to check the "sonatypeWork" property in the copied version to make sure it is correct).
  4. Copy the nexus-iq-server-<version>.jar file from your installation into the "lib" directory.
  5. Using an administrative user, run ".\bin\clm install".
  6. Using an administrative user, run ".\bin\clm start" to start the windows service, or start it through the services UI

Note that a service will run as the system user in windows, and this user has "C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile\Temp" as it's temporary directory. On some versions of Windows this directory does not exist by default. Make sure that this directory exists, and create it manually if it does not.
