Restarting the Notifier

When you stop the Notifier following a shutdown with the kill.notifier file, you must rename the file manually or delete the file before you do a restart.

If you do not rename or delete the kill.notifier file, the system finds the file and displays the following message:

C:\dev\cos-scanner>python main_notifier.py Starting COS Notifier - Version 0.1
The file 'kill.notifier' is preventing the notifier from running.
You should delete or rename the file and re-start the notifier.
File location: 'C:\dev\cos-scanner\command\kill.notifier

The Scanner and Notifier are separate solutions that share the config file. The files operate independently, so you can start and stop either file independently any time.
