  • By default, the Automation Anywhere Control Room services restart automatically after a system reboot. You do not need a windows service start-up script to restart the services.
  • We recommend you wait for two (2) minutes for the Automation Anywhere Control Room services to restart after a system reboot. If the services do not start automatically, you will see the Bad gateway error. You can restart the services manually in any sequence.
