For multiple apps we use workers on our server.
Now, over the past months we’ve been adjusting settings according to multiple scenarios where the workers don’t (properly) start on server restarts.
It is now down to the point where we cant trust the workers running properly, and thus one of us checks the server daily.
We reïnstalled the workers, allowing them to set-up new tasks (while deleting the workers and tasks before this).
We have used the trigger on the system start or on user logon, we’ve tried starting the workers with or without prompt but everytime (after weeks) suddenly a restart of the server messes this up.
Daniel Sommers works with us for a while, and once i mentioned this to him, he thought to remember more companies having trouble with this very issue. I would like to find a robust and reliable solution.
One solution i see is using a 3rd party application, which might offer more options or;
One thing to keep in mind is that our ICT currently doesn’t allow a server account to be loged on automatically on a server restart. Luckily Task Scheduler has a option (“uitvoeren ongeacht of gebruiker wel of niet is aangemeld”), the worker then is started without prompt. The viktor UI shows geen icons for “Status van integraties”, maar bij werkelijk gebruik van de workers reageren ze totaal niet.
Ik hoor graag wat jullie hiervoor als oplossingen kennen?
