All Windows service nodes are unavailable.

When opening the General screen for any of the nodes, the message is shown:

Host is not functioning

When trying to communicate with a service node, netstat shows a communication issue on the Management Node itself, it is impossible to connect to a certain port:

C:\>netstat -ano | findstr 8382
  TCP    SYN_SENT        13772

Port 8382 is listened by WinHostControl SC:

[root@core ~]# ps aux | grep WinHost | grep -v grep
pemuser  18338  0.0  0.0 111240     8 ?        Ssl  May11   0:00 /usr/local/pem/bin/SoLoader --sc_id=82 --sc="WinHostControl:/usr/local/pem/libexec/" --sc_port=8382 --props-file="/usr/local/pem/etc/pleskd.props" --interfaces=SDK::HostControl::HandleRemoveHostRequest,WinHostControl,SDK::WPE::ProcessWPERequest,SDK::HostControl::PerformHostOperations,SDK::RemoveHostObserver,SDK::InstallAgentObserver,SDK::TaskProcessor::ExecuteTask


WinHostControl SC unavailability, the exact cause is to be determined in each particular case.


Kill the SC process to restore its functionality:

# kill -9 18338

In few minutes it will be restarted by the watchdog service, and the connectivity to service nodes will gradually be restored.
