I was trying out the server roles, address book sync to be more specific. Im having this problem: The address book just desappears. Sometimes (just sometimes) if i manually stop and start the mini internet ID service, the address book reappears. But most of the times, it doesnt. I show you an image:
I cant create a new one, i cant right click, if i press "Edit" nothing happens.
This is happening both in 126.96.36.199 and the new beta 188.8.131.52..
Yes i did! Several times. Sometimes, i can see it at first, but when i access for the second time, its already gone. I algo tried to delete all files on C:\Program Files (x86)\Remote Utilities - Server\data, but it keeps happening :(
I am having the same issue with RUS 184.108.40.206. I am running Windows 7 64 with all the latest patches. I uninstalled all anti-virus programs. The RUS server_log does not show any issues. It just shows the server starting and listening. I can get it to work sometimes by restarting the service but it keep happening.
I also noticed the the address book appears to work again initially after rebooting the computer. However once the remote connections start reporting as idle the address book goes blank again. I really want to purchase this product but I can't without a working address book sync feature.
I used process monitor to confirm the data.xml and address books are being read by the Internetldservice on start up with no access issues. See image below. The file is on the E: drive because I also tried changing the default install location to see if there was a drive access issue.

1. Will connectivity restore if you restart the admin panel (InternetIdAdmin.exe) without restarting the service (InternetIdService.exe)?
2. At the moment when this issue occurs do the Viewers keep syncing the address book normally, or does the sync break as well? You can tell if the address book sync works normally in the Viewer by the address book icon - a regular cloud says it's ok, whereas a cloud with an exclamation sign says that there's no connectivity with the sync server or sync isn't possible.
Restarting the Admin panel (InternetIdAdmin.exe) never resolves the Address Book issue. Restarting the service (InternetIdService.exe) gives you access to the address books for about about 30 seconds - 1 minute. After that time you can't edit it anymore and it goes blank again if you exit and go back into the address book manager.
The sync breaks as well from the viewer. You can't sign in to the server anymore when the address books show up blank on the server.
