Managing Genesis II Containers in Windows

Container Restart

If you see an grid error relating to a connection being refused, most likely your Genesis II Container service needs to be restarted.

  • Open the Services Tool under Control Panels > Administrative Tools.
  • Right click on the Genesis II container service and choose Restart.

After a minute, try repeating the operation that previously gave you the error.

Windows Password Change

After you change your Windows password, you will also need to change the password associated with your Genesis II container service. Otherwise, you will get the following error the next time the container is restarted:

 Could not start the Genesis II container service on local computer.
 Error 1069: the service did not start due to a logon failure.

To change the password used by the Genesis II container service:

  • Open the Services Tool under Control Panels > Administrative Tools.
  • Right click on the Genesis II container service and choose Properties.
  • Under the Log On tab, modify the password to match your new Windows password.

You should now be able to restart the service.
