What is the Noah Service Pre Starter?

With Noah System 4.4 you may have noticed the new Noah Service Pre Starter service. This service has a small foot print with no dependencies and will start up quickly as the machine starts up. The Noah Service Pre Starter’s job is to be sure that the Noah Server and Noah Client services start successfully. In some cases on older or slower computers, those services can time out before starting.

The Noah Service Pre Starter Service will:

  • Verify that the Noah Server and Noah Client services are up and running, if yes it will close down and write to its log file
  • If the Noah Server or Noah Client services do not start, it will attempt to start them, once they are started it will close down and write to its log file
  • If after a set amount of time it is unable to start the services it will write to the log file and close down
