I am unable to start/stop services using SilkCentral Service Manager. The symptoms are:
- This issue can occur when User Account Control is turned on. When right Clicking service manager and choosing "Stop All services", the services are not started.
- Upon opening SilkCentral Service Manager dialog the "Start" and "Stop" buttons are both enabled.
- When you manually stop the SCTM services using Administration Tools | Services you receive the following error:
"Windows could not stop the SilkCentral FrontEnd server service on . Error 109: The pipe has been ended".
To resolve this, do the following:
- Open Control Panel | User Acoounts. - Select "Change your User Account Control settings". - Change this to "Never Notify". - Save and restart machine. - Open Start | All Programs | Silk | SilkCentral | Administration Tools. - Right Click "SilkCentral service Manager" icon and choose "Run as Administrator".
You should now be able to stop and restart SCTM services using service manager.
