Stablebit services not starting on Win Server Essentials 2016

Question

Running Windows Server 2016 with Essentials Role, all updates installed. Stablebit Scanner ver 2.5.4.3216. Stablebit DrivePool ver 2.2.2.934. 

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?

Have you tried setting them to Automatic (Delayed Start)?  Might help if there are any timing issues.

Also - is service Recovery set to auto-restart in the event of service failure?

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.

Awesome.  Seems like it was a timing issue.  If you wanted to dig you could probably find out why, but delayed start on it shouldn't truly affect anything unless you have access to the pool immediately at boot time.

No need for me to look further. It works now, and I really only use this as a WHS replacement to backup my home PCs. I rarely log into the server anyway.

Thanks again for your help.
