On a w2k3 server I have a service running with srvany.exe. The program runs with the AppEnvironment and AppDirectory parameters. I tried this with the sc.exe and failed.
Definition for srvany
Impage Path in Root of the service in regedit:
ImagePath REG_EXPAND_SZ c:\program files\Windows Resource Kits\Tools\srvany.exe
DisplayName REG_SZ CompanyServer_Prod
Under the parameters folder for the service I have the following definitions:
- AppDirectory REG_SZ y:\wwwservers\company.ch\server
- AppEnvironment REG_MULTI_SZ ServerData_DIR= y:\wwwservers\company.ch\data SystemRoot=c:\windows ....
- Application REG_SZ y:\wwwservers\company.ch\server\server.exe
- AppParameters REG_SZ -1y:\wwwservers\company.ch\log\serverexe.log -22 -30 -555
After I have tried with the sc.exe command, the registry was defined, but the programm didn't start, because of missing parameters. I have tried following command:
sc create CompanyServer_Prod start= auto binpath= "y:\wwwservers\company.ch\server\server.exe -1y:\wwwservers\company.ch\log\serverexe.log -22 -30 -555" DisplayName= "Company Server Prod"
Do you have any suggestion, how I can do this on a W2K8 R2 server?
The workaround: Copy the srvany.exe command on the w2k8 r2 server and it works as before on a w2k3. But I think, there are some reason that microsoft don't deploy the srvany.exe anymore.
Thanks for your help in advance

AFAIK, there is no formal version of srvany.exe which gets shipped along with the reskit of windows 2008 / windows 2008 R2.
