Keeping openfire and spark open on server when logged off

Here’s the annoying issue:

When any one of the admin accounts logs off from an open server (DC) session this ends the Openfire session, which of course has our users calling in because “Spark has failed again.”

Any suggestions on how we can keep openfire running as a permanant service on the DC?


Read the documentation and install it as a service:

  1. Open a cmd prompt
  2. navigate to the BIN folder inside the openfire program folder
  3. enter openfire-service.exe /install
  4. enter openfire-service.exe /start
  5. exit cmd prompt
  6. logout and test
