There are possiby 2 parts to this.

Part 1 : what Windows itself will accept as a Service name.

The only clear info on that subject which I could find quickly is here :
which seems to exclude just "/" and "\".

Part 2 : what the Windows command interpreter shell (cmd) does with your command line

tomcat6 //IS//servicename {params ...}

Have you tried putting "servicename" between quotes ?

In a different context, I remember finding out that Netbios "system names" or "share 
names" do not admit "-" signs in them for instance (and maybe also not "_").
Maybe since a Service name may be used in Netbios sometimes, the same rules apply ?
(just guessing).
