is the service set to start automatically?
what service are you trying to start? I've never seen that message come up.
I've received that message when it is not setup correctly. Backtrack your steps and make sure everything is in order.
Got it working.
Followed the instructions in the Upgrade and Migration.
Yes the service was set up to run automatically.
The field Server.ssl.certname field in the sbhttp.ini had reverted back to 127.0.0.1. Changing it to the name of the server and restarting the service did the trick.
Thanks for the snappy responses though!
Every upgrade. sfdbback.slc gets overwritten as does SbHttp.ini.
A PITA. I don't know why this behaviour hasn't been fixed yet.
