I know that changing some things in a server document requires a server restart (or used to, in earler releases.) Other things require restarting only a task....like http ...still others perhaps don't require a restart...they just require patience.
I've searched Knowledgebase, and the R5 admin guide, and this forum, and found a couple of documents on what doesn't require a restart for 4.x releases, and I've found some info on specific tasks for R5 servers, but nowhere have I found a complete list of items in the server document, and which of them requires a restart,if changed. Does anyone have the official list ?
