Start Missing Services@<hostname>

You use this function if you have changed the servers the TREX daemon is to start in the configuration file of the TREX daemon.

This function does the following:

  • Removes the servers that you removed from the configuration file.

    All other servers continue to run and are not affected by this action.

Edit Services @<hostname>

Opens the TREX configuration file TREXDaemon.ini to adjust the corresponding entries for the TREX services if necessary.
