Please help with config file for starting SQL Anywhere Windows service with HTTPS and 2 listeners. While starting dbsrv12.exe via cmd console, server starts and runing without errors:

"C:\Program Files\SQL Anywhere 12\Bin64\dbsrv12.exe" -dt C:\TEMP -c 1G -n fire_web -x tcpip(MyIP=;ServerPort=5000;DoBroadCast=No) -xs http(Port=8050;MaxRequestSize=70m;LOPT=ALL,HEADERS;LOG=D:\BASE\WebAccsess.log),https(identity=D:\BASE\CERTIFICATE.pem;identity_password=PASSWORD;port=443) -o D:\BASE\messages.log -oe D:\BASE\startup.log D:\BASE\DATABASE.db -n DATABASE

But when starting Windows service with config file:

-o D:\BASE\messages.log -dt C:\TEMP -c 1G -n fire_web -x tcpip(MyIP=;ServerPort=5000;DoBroadCast=No) -xs http(Port=8050;MaxRequestSize=70m;LOPT=ALL,HEADERS;LOG=D:\BASE\WebAccsess.log),https(identity=D:\BASE\CERTIFICATE.pem;identity_password=PASSWORD ;port=443) D:\BASE\DATABASE.db -n DATABASE

service not starting. Please take a look on ,https(identity=D:\BASE\CERTIFICATE.pem;identity_password=PASSWORD;port=443)" part. This parameter runs 2nd listener with HTTPS and without this parameter writing with comma, server starts and running. Can't understand why this happens. Any suggestions ?

What message do you get? What build are you using? I've tried this and it works for me using

Could it be the service account does not have access to the identity file? - Although that sounds rather improbable when it resides within the same directory as the database file...
