You might experience loss of logs if you use the vmo.bat file to restart the Orchestrator server.

Problem

If you start the Orchestrator server as a service and you then restart the Orchestrator server by running the vmo.bat file directly, you can experience a potential loss of logs.

Cause

Logs can be lost if you start the Orchestrator server as a service and restart it by using the vmo.bat. This behavior can cause the server to run with different permissions.

Procedure

  1. Right-click My Computer on your desktop and select Manage.
  2. In the Computer Management dialog box, expand Services and Applications and select Services.
  3. In the right pane, right-click and select VMware vCenter Orchestrator Server > Restart.
