How to stop HDInsight Services For Windows

My installation of “HDInsights Services For Windows” on my “Windows 8.1 Pro” is more of learning rather than a server level always on installation. I started seeing many Java Platform SE binary(s) running in the task manager and forgot that these were the services being run by Apache Hadoop.

It is always a good idea to set the services on development machines to run in manual mode but in case you forget to set it up or you like to find a easy way to stop or start the services, than check out the below sample, as these services may be renamed or additional added or removed since my blog being posted.

For stopping OR starting all the “Apache Hadoop” Services, use a batch file, and run this file with elevated permissions.

File name: Services_Stop_Apache_Hadoop.bat

***************************************
echo Services Stop Apache Hadoop

NET STOP datanode
NET STOP derbyserver
NET STOP historyserver
NET STOP hiveserver
NET STOP hiveserver2
NET STOP hwi
NET STOP jobtracker
NET STOP metastore
NET STOP namenode
NET STOP oozieservice
NET STOP secondarynamenode
NET STOP tasktracker
NET STOP templeton
******************************************

File name: Services_Start_Apache_Hadoop.bat

***************************************
echo Services Start Apache Hadoop

NET START datanode
NET START derbyserver
NET START historyserver
NET START hiveserver
NET START hiveserver2
NET START hwi
NET START jobtracker
NET START metastore
NET START namenode
NET START oozieservice
NET START secondarynamenode
NET START tasktracker
NET START templeton
******************************************

If you are constantly stopping the service’s on each system restart than it’s better to set these services in the “Administrator Tools >> Service” applet to start “Manual”, or in case of always starting the services, then set the option to “Automatic” start.
