Have you noticed that the eOne SmartConnect Windows service does not always start automatically after a reboot?

Drat! Another bad start! What am I doing wrong?

We had that problem. If we forgot to check, it would lead to other problems, with scheduled maps not running when they should.

We decided to try making the eOne SmartConnect service dependent on the SQL Server service. This means Windows will not try to start the SmartConnect service until the SQL Server service is up and running.

My colleague Carl Holzhauer made the change, and we haven’t had a bad reboot since.

Hope this helps someone else!
