Hi,

I configured Alfresco 2.1 R1 as a windows service as per instructions on Alfresco wiki at: http://wiki.alfresco.com/wiki/Configuring_Alfresco_as_a_Windows_Service.

With this configuration, i found the following issues:
1. When i start Alfresco configured as a windows service, Alfresco does not write a log file on windows file system or windows Event Log.
2. When i start Alfresco configured as a windows service, i cannot configure CIFS. Note: I have put Alfresco\bin in windows Path environment variable.

Please note that when i start Alfresco using alf_start.bat, i do not have the issues listed above.

Is there any other way to cofigure Alfresco as a windows service without the issues listed above? 

Thanks
