I’m converting the agent.bat startup of veridata agent as a service in windows and I followed the procedure as mentioned in the README but I’m not able to start the service successfully.

Here are the instructions in README file of veridata agent

Steps to install as a service:

1. Go to the Oracle GoldenGate Veridata Agent deployment directory.

2. Enter the "service" folder.

3. Edit the file ''.

4. Find '_VERIDATA_SERVICE_NAME' and change it to the service name for the agent.
The name can only contain alphabets or numbers. No special character
or white space is allowed.

5. Find '_AGENT_PROPERTY_FILE' and change it to the agent properties file name which has to be run as a service.

6. Save and close the file.

7. Run a Windows command session.

8. Execute Install_veridata_Agent.bat from the installation directory of the agent.

Actual Steps

• Location of veridata agent is at C:\veridata_agents location

# Agent property file of the veridata agent.
