The Automation Engine (AE) fails to start after the termination of the application on a Windows Server. The server processes are started but remain inactive.  No objects are actually started.
Connection via the Graphical User Interface (GUI) is also not possible.
Both the application and the database servers are restarted, but the AE processes remain inactive.  Also, stopping the server with the Service-Manger and/or the Windows service leaves the processes hung in a ‘shutdown’ state. 

Cause type: Other
