Hi Stephen,

After commenting the line in stsvc.ini file, did you restart all the OMSA services?

Thanks

Commenting that one line in stsvc.ini did not change the behavior at all.

I'm trying to revert the system back to 8.2 since it works. It seems as if this is the second time OMSA has been updated to 8.3 and caused some systems to start behaving poorly. The first time 8.3 was pulled back and now with this second attempt to release it it's doing the same thing all over again.
