How To Resolve the Issue of Content Server Service Timing Out

(Doc ID 754744.1)

Last updated on MAY 23, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Content - Version 7.5.1 and later
z*OBSOLETE: Microsoft Windows
Microsoft Windows


Symptoms

When running Content Server on a Microsoft Windows machine. Content Server starts successfully as an application when running IdcServer.exe from the <Content_Server>\bin directory. However, when starting Content Server as a service (either from the Windows Services console or through the Content Server Admin Server), Content Server fails to start.

I followed the directions in <Note 754738.1>, and created a debug.log file.  This log file contains the lines:

Starting the service............................................................
Startup timeout occurred.


This indicates that the Content Server service is timing out.
