Intermittent Error in Creating New GSP Instance

[ Edited ]

When I set up GSP and create an instance, everything works as normal. If I come back a few days later and try to create another instance, I get a Service Exception. When I restart the Admin Console Service, I can create an instance again. I've looked at the logs, and nothing unusual jumps out. I don't know what changes every couple of days to cause the Admin Console to stop functioning properly

Re: Intermittent Error in Creating New GSP Instance

Hi Anthony,


The exception which I can see tells: 'The service encountered an unhandled exception System.ArgumentException: Unknown installer command type'.


I have found other topics with same problem. Both were caused by corrupted installation:

You can try to run Configuration Wizard and Recreate the Administration Console
