How to: Stop an Instance of Notification Services (Services Manager)

Each instance of Notification Services has an engine on each server that runs a hosted event provider, generator, or distributor. Typically, the NS$instanceName Microsoft Windows service runs the Notification Services engine. One way to stop a Windows service is through the Windows Services Manager.

This procedure does not apply to clusters. On a cluster, you must use Cluster Administrator to stop the Generic Service that is configured to run the instance's Windows service.

  1. In Control Panel, open Administrative Tools, and then open Services.

  2. Right-click the NS$instanceName service.

  3. Select Stop.
