JSI Tip 0589 - What is the affect of pausing a service?

When you pause a service:

. Existing connections are not affected.

. New connections are blocked for ordinary users.

. New connections are allowed for members of the Domain Admins, Administrators, and Power Users groups.

How a service behaves when it is paused depends on the service, but mostly revolve around granting special privileges to accounts belonging to privileged groups.
