Hi,

We are experiencing a problem when rolling out new images after reboot of our secondary ZCM server, which is running version 10.3.0. The Preboot service does not start automatically, but if we go into the "Services" menu on the server and start it manually, everything works fine. The only error I can find on the server which seems to fit the problem is this:

Event Type: Error
Event Source: Application Error

The problem presents itself as a licencing issue during the build process, but after investigating it seems that it is only the lack of the preboot service which is the actual problem. This server starts up/reboots one half hour after our primary ZCM server.

Any idea what might be the problem?
