Service B that is dependent on
Service A. Both services are set for automatic(delayed) start upon boot and both services have set Recovery Action of restart in case of first, second and subsequent failures.
The scenario is:
- Windows is booting.
- It tries to start
Service Acrashes upon start because it cannot initialize (e.g. connect to remote database).
- Recovery Action kicks in and windows keep starting
Service Aat some intervals.
Service Afinally starts fine (e.g. remote db is now accessible).
And that's it, Windows doesn't bother to start
Service B despite it having Automatic (delayed) startup type.
I'm confused a bit with this behavior. Is there anything I can do to make windows start
Service B ?
