We've currently have 9 instances of Central installed on servers running W2K3. For some reason, whenever a server restarts or even when Central (as a service) restarts, instances 2 through 9 automatically pause. Does anyone know why this happens? I originally thought is was some custom agent my old boss (he retired so now this is my burden) created but I don't think this is the case. We do have a custom agent that executes when Central starts/restarts, but it doesn't pause the other instances. Is it just a feature of Central Output Server that does this? If so, how do I turn it off? Any help is appreciated.
