I have installed an Ignition gateway on my desktop for testing. I performed a fresh install of version 8.1.5 and restored a gateway backup of our Development gateway (also 8.1.5), selecting ‘Restore Disabled’ as I did. The restore works fine. I’m able to log in to the gateway webpage and open the designer as I would expect. When I try to run any of the batch files in
C:\Program Files\Inductive Automation\Ignition, however they fail with this error:
wrapperm | The "wrapper.java.command" property was redefined on line #46 of configuration file: C:\Program Files\Inductive Automation\Ignition\data\ignition.conf wrapperm | Old Value wrapper.java.command=lib/runtime/jre-win/bin/java wrapperm | New Value wrapper.java.command=%JAVA_HOME%/bin/java wrapperm | The IgnitionDev service is not installed - The specified service does not exist as an installed service. (0x424) Press any key to continue . . .
When I installed the gateway, I used the default service name of
Ignition, compared to the service name
IgnitionDev used on the gateway I took a backup from. This may be the cause of the last line.
Is there a way to make these batch files work? I can stop the gateway service through task manager, but I’m uncertain how I can restart the service later if I can’t get the batch files working.
