Stablebit services not starting on Win Server Essentials 2016



Running Windows Server 2016 with Essentials Role, all updates installed. Stablebit Scanner ver Stablebit DrivePool ver 

The issue I am having is that Drivepool and Scanner Services are not starting automatically. I restart the server and they still do not start. As a result, the Essentials Dashboard will not load the Drivepool and Scanner tabs. There is just a message Connecting to Service (elapsed time). 

I have reinstalled both utilities and restarted the server a few times with the same result. When I manually start the services the dashboard tabs work correctly.

Any ideas?

Thank you very much Jaga.

The services were already set to auto restart in Recovery, but on its own, that did not resolve the issue. Setting to Automatic (Delayed start) seems to have resolved things. Three restarts now and no issues with the utilities connecting to the services.
