I already had this problem with version 3.1.1 - only when running the server in interactive mode was I able to get the Wowza bootstrap thingie in JConsole. Swiched to service and all I get is the sun.tool.jconsol.JConsole local process. I played wiht enable JMX and other stuff I read in the instructions, but no change.
Same now on version 3.5. System is a Server 2008 R2 enterprise Edition, perpetural Edition Wowza 3.5.0 with Trancoder license installed. I changed the account the Wowza service runs under from System to a local admin account, but no change. Everything seems to work fine, but I have no way to monitor the server. In fact, since version 3.5, I can't even see a console when running it as an interactice program from the start menu - it just fires up the service. Do I have to completely disable the service, not just stop and set to manual startup, so that I can run the console version?
