Stop and start Control Room services on Linux

Review the instructions and service names to stop and restart Automation Anywhere Control Room services on Linux.


Log in to your Automation Anywhere Control Room server.


  1. If you just finished installing A2019, use the following command to display the status of all Control Room services:

    sudo systemctl status control*

    Browse through the output. If any of the services are not actively running, you can manually start the service with the following command (see the next step for specific service names):

    sudo systemctl start <servicename>

    Note: If more than one service is not running, you can use the script in the next step to start all the services.

    For other Linux installation issues, contact Automation Anywhere support: Open a support case (A-People login required).

  2. Optional: Create a script from the following code, such as, to start all the Control Room services.
    This sample script lists the Control Room services that need to be restarted. You can restart the services in any sequence.
    The sleep commands allow each service to complete startup before the next service is started.
    Note: controlroomdiscoverybot.service is only installed by default starting in Automation 360 version 16.
