I am wondering if there is a tool in the Toolbox for Stopping and Starting services.
Of if there is an explanation in normal peoples language on how to do so with a Python Script.
What I need.
Stop a service so three tables can be truncated. Load the tables, Start the Map Service back up.
I have seen a number of answers that are complicated.
There must be a command line that can be used as well. We have used them all the time for some SDE functions.
