DevTest 10.4 onwards Server Components not getting started automatically on server restart

Facing this strange issue in DevTest 10.5 version. When any server restart happens the DevTest registry component is not coming up automatically although the StartupType: Automatic


Based on investigation SE team has found that IAM takes longer to start completely before Registry process. To be able to handle this situation in "Automatic" startup setup, the changes have to be done at installer(install Shield) level. This change can only be corrected/released as part of next GA release and cannot be provided as a patch fix.


Release : 10.5, 10.4

Component : CA Service Virtualization


The best workaround till then is to set the startup type to "Automatic (Delayed Start)"  for the below services and restart the machine.

DevTest Registry,

DevTest VSE,

DevTest Coordinator

DevTest Simulator
