Issue/Introduction

The Windows Services COMPANY_NODE_IO_X and User Services have IGNORES_SHUTDOWN instead of ACCEPTS_SHUTDOWN as on EEP and GSI services which provokes that the service IO_X does not stop correctly when shutting down or restarting the Windows server.

This can be checked via the sc command:

sc query UBERIT_vmstm2k1601_IO_X

SERVICE_NAME: UBERIT_vmstm2k1601_IO_X
TYPE : 10 WIN32_OWN_PROCESS
STATE : 4 RUNNING
(STOPPABLE, NOT_PAUSABLE, IGNORES_SHUTDOWN)
WIN32_EXIT_CODE : 0 (0x0)
SERVICE_EXIT_CODE : 0 (0x0)
CHECKPOINT : 0x0
WAIT_HINT : 0x0

sc query UBERIT_vmstm2k1601_EEP_X

SERVICE_NAME: UBERIT_vmstm2k1601_EEP_X
TYPE : 10 WIN32_OWN_PROCESS
STATE : 4 RUNNING
(STOPPABLE, NOT_PAUSABLE, ACCEPTS_SHUTDOWN)
WIN32_EXIT_CODE : 0 (0x0)
SERVICE_EXIT_CODE : 0 (0x0)
CHECKPOINT : 0x0
WAIT_HINT : 0x0

sc query UNIV69_vmstm2k1601_univ_administrator

SERVICE_NAME: UNIV69_vmstm2k1601_univ_administrator
TYPE : 10 WIN32_OWN_PROCESS
STATE : 4 RUNNING
(STOPPABLE, NOT_PAUSABLE, IGNORES_SHUTDOWN)
WIN32_EXIT_CODE : 0 (0x0)
SERVICE_EXIT_CODE : 0 (0x0)
CHECKPOINT : 0x0
WAIT_HINT : 0x0

 

This can lead to:

  • corruption of DQM batch queues upon restart
  • startup failing on secondary members of a Cluster because some processes did not stop correctly
  • the following kind of messages during startup:
|INFO |X|IO |pid=p.t| o_Auth_ILocal_OWLS_Del_Ke | WARNING: local keys directory [C:\AUTOMIC\DUAS\COMPANY_node\data\exp\local] is not empty.
|INFO |X|IO |pid=p.t| o_Auth_ILocal_OWLS_Del_Ke | WARNING: deleting local keys before START.

 

Expected behavior:
the IO X service should stop automatically when the Windows System is stopped (rebooted) so as other Services such as the EEP and GSI.
