Novell ZENworks Patch Management 6.2
Patchlink Distribution service is stopped and will not restart. When attempting to start the service an errorÂ similar to the following will be returned.
"Could not start the Patchlink_Distribution service on the Local Computer.
The service did not return and error. This could be an internal Windows error or an internal service error.
If the problem persists, contact you system administrator."
This is an indication that the temporary file squid.pid has been corrupted or was not removed properly upon service shutdown. Browse to \Program Files\Patchlink\Distribution Point\var\logs and delete the squid.pid file. AfterÂ removal of the squid.pid file, theÂ Patchlink_Distribution service should launchÂ and function normally.
During normal startup of the Patchlink_Distribution SquidNT service the squid.pid temporaryÂ file will be created in \Program Files\Patchlink\Distribution Point\var\logs. When the service is shut down normally, this file should be removed.
