A few weeks ago I struggled with upgrading 7.9.7 to 7.9.9, in that the gateway service was unable to start after the upgrade. I managed to get it running after a series of uninstalls, reinstalls, and gateway restores. Walked away with it running 7.9.9 stable. I had no issues with the upgrade on the redundant machine.
Fast forward to today. The site lost power and on restart, the gateway service did not restart automatically. I restarted and pulled a gateway backup, moved it to the testbench, and it worked fine; reboots and all. So I uninstalled and reinstalled ignition on the production device, restored to it, and still had issues on reboot. Even a clean gateway backup failed to restart on its own.
After a reboot, if I open the gateway control utility, this is what I get:
If I click Stop, it tells me the service isn’t running. If I hit start, it will start and eventually the fields will populate with the right information.
The ignition gateway service is properly configured in services.msc to start automatically.
The one thing that really stood out to me was that, even after an uninstall, deleting the remaining files, and reisntall, the fresh install would suffer from the same issues.
Any thoughts on what’s going on? I have yet to try reinstalling Java.
