Issue:

Issue:

I cannot start the Application Server from the Server Tray.

You need to start the Application Server in the Server Tray application under an administrator account.


Issue:

I have installed a new version of the Application Server, but I want to use the old database.

Your existing database will remain in place if you select the option to use your old database when prompted, while reinstalling the Application Server.


Issue:

My anti-virus blocks uninstallation/update of the Application Server.

It is recommended that you disable your anti-virus during uninstallation/update of the Application Server. Due to the specifics of the uninstaller, some anti-viruses might detect it as a false positive during a virus scan.


Issue:

I get the following message when trying to open the Management Tool: Server is unavailable. Please contact administrator.

Check the Application Server logs (the default location of the logs is: C:\Program Files\Ekran System\Ekran System\ServerLogs\server.txt).

NOTE: The EkranServer_LogsCollector tool can alternatively be used to download the logs, and needs to be launched on the machine where the Ekran System Application Server is installed by a user with administrator permissions.

Please also check the following:

- The EkranServer service is up and running.

- The Ekran System Application Server has a stable connection to a DB server.

- The DB server has sufficient free space and its service is up and running.

- The port for connection of the Ekran System Application Server to the DB server is open.

- If you are using a binary folder to store the screen captures, please check that the EkranServer service was launched under a user or a service account that has the required permissions to read and write to this folder.
