    apinger was relplaced by dpinger. you have to remove this service in your watchdog config Services -> Service Watchdog



  • apinger was relplaced by dpinger. you have to remove this service in your watchdog config Services -> Service Watchdog

    It would be handy if Service Watchdog was taught about this, and if it finds an "apinger" in its list of watched services then it can automatically rename it to dpinger and get on with life.



  • Big thanks all!!

    Appreciate the help.

    Will check into all suggestions.
