Sitecore Marketing Automation Engine service not starting. Fails install.

I've tried removing the certificates, using the scripts to move the certs. Reinstalling the prerequisites. I'm stumped at this point. Happy to send any logs etc for debugging/troubleshooting.

  • Are you seeing exceptions in the marketing automation engine service? The "failure to start" could be any number of nothings, you'll need to dig into the logs to see what is causing the failure to start.

    My guess? Something to do with connecting to xConnect (it always seems to be a configuration connecting to xConnect). Make sure the user the service is running under has access to the cert store, that's a tricky one that gets missed.
