The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1. Log in to SMC and create a gateway cluster profile
2. Deploy gateway clustering with 3 nodes and Submit. Deployment successful
3. Validated application services and all looks good.
4. Restart the whole enterprise for validation
5. Application services not starting and srvrmgr not working
