Web Server 2008 services won't start
I've just looked at my external ePortal server (Web Server 2008) and nothing much is running on it. It's virtualised (VMWare Server) but that shouldn't make a difference.
There's no network connection, and a lot of automatic services aren't running. When I try to start any of them I get error 1053. The event viewer doesn't show anything obvious about services not running (I think that's another symptom - events just aren't getting logged - Windows Error Reporting Service isn't running). Even if I try to restart some of the running services, they won't restart.
I back up the VM every week with a script to stop it, copy and restart it. The backup is also corrupt.
I could just create a new VM, and reinstall ePortal and the SSL cert, although on IIS7 that's not a quick job.
Automatic Services not running:-
Application Host Helper
Diagnostic Policy Service
Distributed Link Tracking Client
Facility Data Server
Network List Service
Network Location Awareness
Windows Error Reporting Service
Windows Remote Management
