About the Services
FME Server is comprised of a series of components, and each component is installed as a standard Windows service.
FME Server Core
The FME Server Core is the main FME Server service and should always be running. By default, this service is started at system boot time.
FME Server Engines
This service starts and runs the FME Server engines.
FME Server Database
On install, if you use the default FME Server database, it creates a service called FME Server Database, which automatically starts at system boot time. If you used your own database, such as Oracle, ensure that the service starts prior to the FME Server Service starting.
On install, if you use the default FME Server Web Application Server, the service automatically starts at system boot time. If you are using your own web application server, it is important to note that the FME Server Web Services are deployed and run by your web application server, not by FME Server itself. Ensure that your web application server is started for users to access any FME Server web services including the Web User Interfaces.
FME Server SMTP Relay
This service provides FME Server with the ability to receive email messages. By default, this service is started at boot time.
