Data Collector Doesn't Restart On Server Reboot

by Mar 17, 2015



We are running the Monitoring Station (v7.3) on a vmware virtual server (Windows Server 2012 R2).  We have had to reboot the vm a few times and when it restarts the Data Collector does not start up.  The windows event viewer has the followign error message.


‘The system cannot join or substitute a drive to or for a directory on the same drive.’


Has anyone else came across this and found a solution?  Manually stopping and starting the services works, but if it does an automatic reboot overnight or at the weekend it does not get dealt with until someone is in the office.
