WCCILpmon as service Error 1067 occured
Note: This is no replacement for the Official ETM Support!
we struggling to run WinCC-OA 3.16 P.7 as a service on our Server.
Please find att. the Windows message which occurs after trying to start manually the Service. The Service will not start automatic and if we start manually the att. message pops up. We tried as well to run the service as NetworkService and LocalService, no difference.
Only if we run the service as a local system account the project starts up.
Please find att. the Windows error message and the system information's.
we tried to setup a normal user account but unfortunately the system will not progress as expected. Please find att. a picture of the message and the Server System we are using.
it seems that there is an error during registration of the service
--switch to bin directory of <<WinCCOA-InstallDir>> --> E:\Siemens\Automation\WinCC_OA\3.16\bin
--enter command: WCCILpmon -install -set E:\Siemens\Automation\Central\config\config 1 -name newservice
<<newservice>> ... is a name defined by your own.
<<E:\Siemens\Automation\Central\config\>> ... is the path of your project config
you can easily check the service in registry.
Afterwards it is necessary to assign a "real Account" (the login user who have permission to WinCCOA) ans set the starttyp to "Automatically".
with best regards,
we managed now to run the pmon as Service with an normal corporate domain User. We entered the user in the Windows user group of the server and put the user to the administrator group. We removed the old service by using the console and install the pmon as service with the corporate user. We restart the system and the pmon started automatically.
But still the question left: Why is the Network Service account not working. We run now about ten Nanoboxes (Win10 or WIn7)) as distributed system and the account for the service pmon is NetworkService and on the central Server (2012) it is not working.
Do you have maybe any further idea where we have to look for a solution? We would like to setup the central machine in the same manner like the Nanoboxes and according to the WinCC OA help.
Possibly your system administration can give you more information for this error code.
Maybe there a differences in Windows between a Server 2012 and Windows 7/10 which leads to the different behaviour.
