Configure the Document Conversions Launcher Service

Note: Visit www.microsoft.com for the most up-to-date and comprehensive information.

You can configure the Document Conversions Launcher Service on a stand-alone server or on multiple servers in a farm. When you run the Document Conversions Launcher Service on multiple servers, each instance of the service must point to the same load balancer server.

Note: Turning off the Document Conversions Launcher Service stops the document conversion process. The service must be restarted to resume document conversion.

  1. On the top navigation bar, click Operations.

  2. On the Operations page, in the Topology and Services section, click Services on server.

  3. On the Services on Server page, select the role that most closely matches how this server is to be used, such as Web server for medium server farms.

  4. In the Service list, click Document Conversions Launcher Service.

  5. On the Launcher Service Settings page, in the Select Server section, select the name of the server on which you want to run the Document Conversions Launcher Service.

  6. In the Load Balancer section, select the load balancer server with which you want to associate this launcher service.

  7. In the Port Number section, specify the port number that the launcher service will use for communication.

  8. Click OK.

Important: The Document Conversions Load Balancer Service and the Document Conversions Launcher Service are often run on application servers, not front-end Web servers. Wherever they are run, the services must be configured to communicate with the front-end Web servers.
