    What needs to be considered when an object is stopped externally?


    When an  object is stopped externally, so outside of TOM,
    - it will not be restarted by TOM in case it is a child object and its parent is not active at the time
      of the stop. This is valid for weak and strong dependencies.
      The status of such a child object will first be set to ACTIVE-ERR and then to STOPPED.
      (Note: The dependency strength is only considered during a stop of an object under TOM control.)
    - the Start Command Count (Start Cmd Count) will not be set to 0 when
      Reset start count at term:   S Yes  
      is set.
      This parameter is only reset, when an object is stopped under TOM’s control.
