While I cannot give you a solution, I can share that I had a similar issue with an SRM install.  Just like yours, mine was a working install that for some odd reason started exhibiting the same symptoms.  Start service, within a second or two, service stopped.

I opened a ticket with VMware on the issue, and over the course of over three months of back and forth exchange with various support techs I never got a satisfactory answer on what was causing it.  The "solution" I was given was to delete the SRM SQL database and re-install SRM.  This "solution" did work, but should this issue return, I'm probably going to have to get unpleasant in insisting they solve the issue.

I wish I could be more help, but there it is.  I feel your pain.

Hi,

Is this a fresh installation of SRM that never worked or this something that stopped working?

Do you have SRM on the second site? Is it working?

Hi,

Did you check whether any other service running which is odd from recovery site? Do you have any anti-virtus software installed in that server?

Thanks,

Vijaya

Can you attach the complete logfile. There is nothing "suspicious"  in what you have published already.

Hi,

Have you opened a ticket with VMware or you,ve found a way to fix this problem by yourself ? It seems I have the same situation here.

I opened a ticket about it. It got bounced around for about 3 months with absolutely no resolution from VMware. Their only suggestion was to completely uninstall SRM, blow away the database and reinstall from scratch.

Of course, that worked, but it didn't solve the problem or assure me that it wouldn't happen again. Sorry I don't have better news for you, but there it is.
