We have a custom service that runs on Windows Server 2008 R2 64 bit. It has startup type of "Automatic". However, after a reboot, the service does not start automatically. It does start if we manually start it from the service control panel. What are some possible causes of this, and how can I debug it? I examined the even log and didn't see anything special.
Sounds like a service dependency issue to me. What type of service is it? If you can think of any dependent services that must start first, add them to the dependency list on service properties from services.msc
