If you have encounter problem that Windows Service has crashed but not started again. Then you should look is that service recovery options enabled or not configured.
This is very good way to keep service running if there is not possible to monitor these. If service keep crashing, then it's clear indicator that something is wrong and it's better to look logs to resolve problem.
You may need to use this with Proxies when VMS is 8.3.x or older.
- Go to Windows Services
- On there open you wanted service and go to Recovery tab
- On this tab you can select what happens when service crash and what is action after that
First Failure: Restart the Service Second Failure: Restart the Service Subsequent failures: Take No Action Reset fail count after: 0 days Restart service after: 15 minutes
There is also option to restart computer if this is needed.
