Have been bewildered with a strange problem today, relating to the K2 server “service” actually missing from the list of Services. So – can’t start / run the K2 Service – as it’s not there !
When looking at another Windows 2003 Server, and comparing to the registry on the problem server, it appears that there some registry settings missing
Registry Key :
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\K2 [blackpearl] Server
This contains the setting for the “HostServer” (from the working K2 server) :
C:\Program Files\k2 blackpearl\Host Server\Bin\K2HostServer.exe /S
BUT – on the problem server, the actual “K2HostServer.exe” file has been installed to D:\.
Not sure why – but there was some problem when doing the “Configuration”. After re-doing this config (and might have been wrong user name/s entered by mistake) – then all is OK.
Will try to investigate more – and report.
