28 September 2021

A ClearSCADA driver can be stopped, started or restarted by calling a system command of the following format:

ScxCMD -s MainServer:5481 -u "UserName" -p "UserPass" STOP DriverName


  • MainServer is the IP Address or Name of the Main server. 
  • UserName and UserPass are the user name and user password respectively.
  • DriverName refers to the driver being stopped, started or restarted. Replace "STOP" by "START" or "RESTART" to start or restart the driver.

Below is an example of stopping the Crystal Reports driver:

ScxCMD -s -u "User1" -p "Password1" STOP CrystalReports
