My question is about PublishingTools failing to start.
The publishing tools service fails with the error message:
"service failed to start System.PublishingTools.GPServer: Service's containing process has crashed"
I have uninstaled the Spectre and Meltdown security patches as well but the problem still exists.
The server logs give an error code 9003 with message
Cannot obtain a free instance.; nested exception is: com.esri.arcgis.discovery.ejb.ArcGISServerEJBException: java.lang.Exception: Could not initialize service 'System/PublishingTools.GPServer'.
How do I fix this issue?
I have ArcGIS Server 10.1 on Windows Server 2008 R2.
