BUG: Windows servicename length is very limited on W2012-R2
|Reported by:||spli||Owned by:|
omero.windows.servicename=abcdefghijk (corresponding to a service name of abcdefghijk.master) fails with the unhelpful event log message
The description for Event ID 0 from source abcdefghijk.master cannot be found. Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your local computer or the installation is corrupted. You can install or repair the component on the local computer. If the event originated on another computer, the display information had to be saved with the event. The following information was included with the event: invalid option: `C:\Jenkins\workspace\OMERO-5.1-latest-deploy-win2012\OMERO.server-5.1.0-rc2-ice35-b39\etc\grid\windefault.xml'
as does abcdefghij and abcdefghi.
This implies it might be related to the length of the service name, though the documentation says up to 256 chars should be supported, and it's not consistent- sometimes the long name works fine. Also it works perfectly well on Hake (2008-R2)
