Recently we have encountered several times wowza didn’t start issue after reboot our VM servers, the error messages are :
ERROR server comment 2017-01-12 07:29:00 - - - - - 34.168 - - - - - - - - The Wowza Media Systems Software licensing system was not able to connect to the licensing server to validate your license. Please validate that your machine is able to send HTTP data over TCP port 80 to the Internet. If this problem persists, please visit http://www.wowza.com/subscriptionsupport.php for up to date information.

Could you make your license checker more network fault tolerant? ( f.e. do some retry attempt )
Currently we are looking to implement some monitoring program to restart the server if the streaming engine didn’t start.
