In my current issue with a database assertion, I tried to force the database server (running on Windows) to automatically restart via dbsrv17 -ufd restart_escalate option setting.

There's no setting for -uf as the Windows default (defunct) would fit.

Explicitly restarting the Windows service does succeed, so I would assume it should also do so via this -ufd setting. However, it does not restart automatically, it just shuts down the database server. (There's just one database running on that server, version is

Am I missing a setting, or is this assertion "too severe" for a smooth re-start?

Just an idea, maybe you can write a scheduler rule to check if the server is running and start it?

I guess I'm primarily asking WHY it does not work as I would expect, i.e. whether I have missed a relevant setting.
