To start channels automatically after Windows reset

  • Sometimes, when Windows OS is upgraded/patched/etc, it will terminate Windows Services upon Windows restart.

    In this scenario Iguana will report it cannot start channels automatically. This is security measure, to prevent data corruption. Iguana wouldn’t know if OS terminated Iguana Service intentionally or not.

    One way to work around it is to use batch file to take Iguana Service down gracefully before restarting Windows, i.e “net stop service_name”.

    The other way is to reconfigure Windows to take Services down gracefully, rather than terminating them.

    Step 1:

    To ensure that Windows can shutdown gracefully without having a User logged on and typing manually, edit Group Policy.

    Run gpedit.msc and set Computer Configuration > Windows Settings > Security Settings > Local Policies > Security Options “Shutdown:” to “Enable”

    Step 2:

    To ensure the Shutdown Warning doesn’t stop Windows from completing graceful shutdown edit Registry.

    Run regedit.msc and set HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Microsoft/Windows NT/CurrentVersion/Windows “ShutdownWarningDialogTimeout” to 1 (type 0.00000001)
