Shutdown methods to avoid on Windows NT

In some cases, shutting down your system without first shutting down Historical Server can cause uncontrolled shutdown. Unless Historical Server is experiencing a very high level of recording activity, its controlled shutdown should take much less than 20 seconds. If 20 seconds or more are used for the controlled shutdown, however, the system may intervene and terminate Historical Server in an uncontrolled way.

WARNING! To be safe, Sybase recommends that Historical Server be stopped manually before shutting down the system.

If Microsoft Visual C++ Process Viewer tool is installed on your system, Sybase recommends that you do not use the Kill Process button in the Process Viewer window.

WARNING! Using the Kill Process button causes an uncontrolled shutdown.
