After installing the Windows 10 feature update 1903 the collector fails to start. This issue has only been noticed with the 1903 feature update (latest as of May 2019) and only affects collectors running on Windows 10.
If you try to start the collector from PowerShell, you will get these errors:
PS C:\Program Files\Sumo Logic Collector> net start sumo-collector
The service is not responding to the control function.
More help is available by typing NET HELPMSG 2186.
PS C:\Program Files\Sumo Logic Collector> ./startCollectorService.bat
C:\Program Files\Sumo Logic Collector>sc start sumo-collector
[SC] StartService FAILED 1053:
Please note that cumulative Windows 10 updates before and after 1903 do not cause this problem.
In order to fix this, you will need to upgrade the collector from the command line to its current or latest version.
Once you have the collector executable file, please upgrade using this command from PowerShell or cmd.exe:
SumoCollector.exe -console -q
Once the upgrade completes, the collector should start automatically and ingestion will resume.
If you continue to have issues after following the above steps, then please reach out to Sumo Logic Technical Support at email@example.com.
