Universal Server will not start after 2.0.2 upgrade from 2.0

Service fails to auto start, but I don’t believe this to be related as this was happening with 2.0. After manual start this is shown in the log.

2021-06-08T15:49:35.4387202-05:00 [ERR] Dashboard process is not running. Dashboard may have crashed or failed to start. (c4e1ca29)

In the Application log are 2 errors.

Can you send me a full log to support@ironmansoftware.com?

I decided to rebuild the server. It was exhibiting other issues so I thought I would just start with a fresh install. I think this was just a symptom of another problem.

Everything works after the rebuild. I did find that I still had an issue with the service starting automatically on reboot but I found that extending the ServicesPipeTimeout to 60000 milliseconds seems to have resolved that. The procedure is below.

a) Click Start, click Run, type regedit, and then click OK.
b) Locate and then click the following registry subkey:
c) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control
d) In the right pane, locate the ServicesPipeTimeout entry.

Note If the ServicesPipeTimeout entry does not exist, you must create it. To do this, follow these steps:
a) On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click DWORD Value.
b) Type ServicesPipeTimeout, and then press ENTER.
c) Right-click ServicesPipeTimeout, and then click Modify.
d) Click decimal, type 60000, and then click OK.
