SharePoint – Start and Stop on Development Machine


If you are using your laptop / desktop as a SharePoint Development Environment, and then ocassionally “dont” want to work with SharePoint, here is an easy way to free up local resources (CPU/memory/etc).

The following “windows services” are associated with my SharePoint instance (note the default status as Automatic/Manual/Disabled).

I updated the Automatic to Manual.


Once they are all setup as Manual, use the following to fire up or shut down any of these (in the order) from an elevated command prompt.

To START:

net start SQLWriter
net start SQLBrowser
net start MSSQL$SHAREPOINT
net start SQLAgent$SHAREPOINT
net start W3SVC
net start SPAdminV4
net start SPTimerV4
net start SPTraceV4
net start OSearch14
net start WebAnalyticsService

To STOP:

net stop W3SVC
net stop SPAdminV4
net stop SPTimerV4
net stop SPTraceV4
net stop OSearch14
net stop WebAnalyticsService
net stop SQLAgent$SHAREPOINT
net stop MSSQL$SHAREPOINT
net stop SQLBrowser
net stop SQLWriter
