Restarting Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Web Application service is generally preferred through STSADM command instead of Central Admin

Today we had issues on one of the web nodes and hence we restarted Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Web Application using Central Admin. The service kept showing “Starting”.

We redid our IIS bindings expicilty.

The using STSADM command stsadm -o provisionservice -action start -servicetype spwebservice executed on DOS prompt on \Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\15\BIN directory.

Issued iisreset command.

Now the service shows started through Central Admin.
