Unable to start HMP with Japanese Win2k3 (event-log included)

  • Hello all,

    We've a Japansese customer using our product that uses HMP 3.0 running on Japanese version of Windows Server 2003. We're not using any physical boards together with HMP.
    Unfortunately it fails to come into service and pops up with next error dialog (adding screenshot fails here):

    Dialogic (R) product Configuration Manager
    Error starting Dialogic product service

    It seems that the license itself is OK and is also activated (visible via License Manager). I haven't seen this kind of issue before so I've included the event-log output.

    Checking the event-logs, next errors can be identified (chronologic order like in event-viewer):

    • SCM: Dialogic System services terminated with service specific error 16383 (0x3FFF)
    • SCM (info): state update service

    Do you have any clue where we've to look for a solution?

    With regards,

  • I would be happy to see any news on this. We have tried also to use some French Windows version, and we were not able to make it work, no matter what we did. The only solution was to install an English version of Windows. Fortunately, the client did not complain about this.

    Nope... no progress on this.
    Our Japaneese customer is now also running the English version (luckely), but this is definitely not going to happen at most Japaneese customers. They want their own language... also on the servers... (most the time because of the lack of english knowledge regarding the people who are maintaining the IT environment).

  • Hi EiSl,

    I'm not clear on what troubleshooting you have already done, so I don't know if you narrowed this down to a specific issue with the Japanese version of Windows or not. Assuming it is a typical HMP issue, I always start with ensuring PAE is disabled, as it is not supported:

    http://www.dialogic.com/support/helpweb/hmp/iw1554.aspx

    In addition, HMP does not work on systems running virtual OS software (such as VMWare). If neither of these suggestions are helpful, then since I know HMP will work with other language versions of Windows I would suggest to open a case with your vendor (or with dialogic ... see the service plan options: http://www.dialogic.com/products/services/default.htm). Most likely you will need to collect logs, such as DebugAngel and possibly DebugView, and submit them with your issue.

    Good luck!
