SharePlex runs as a service on the Windows platform. The service name is SharePlex port_number, where port_number is the port number associated with that SharePlex instance.
SharePlex is not installed as a Windows service during the initial installation. You must add and start the service through the SpUtils utility.
To add and start SharePlex as a service
The service is installed in auto-startup mode (start when the system starts) so that replication begins as soon as possible. To change startup status, use the Services applet of the Administrative Tools in the Windows Control Panel.
