LMS 3.2 on Win 2008 Server - Web Server Issue

I just installed LMS 3.2 on Windows 2008 Server Standart X64 and the CiscoWorks Web Server service does not start (Apache service is down but Tomcat up).

All other services seem to be correctly started even if this is quit long.

When I try to manually start the Apache Service with "pdexec Apache", i got :

ERROR:Get reply from server failed:
ERROR: Daemon Manager startup in progress. Please wait.

When the deamon is up, the second line disapeared but apache is still not responding and of course, the URL is unreachable.

This is a HP Proliant Server with 12Go RAM, is there a maximal size for the paging file ?

I did not modify TMP and TEMP variable, should I have done it before the installation ?

it appears to be some service startup issue on win 2008, is there bug fix or work around ?

pdshow attached

Thanks for your help, this is quit urgent.

There's indeed a swap file issue with Win 2008. See the first reply in this thread for corrective action: https://supportforums.cisco.com/message/675893#675891

Though it may not apply, because you've installed LMS 3.2 ok, since you seem to be aware of it, the TMP/TEMP variables do need to be shortened, as noted in this post: https://supportforums.cisco.com/message/677383#677383

Is your Win 2008 Server running any Microsoft Service Packs? Because AFAIK Win 2008 SP2 is not yet supported, and no one seems to have any luck on it with LMS 3.2 yet.

After LMS 3.2 is up and running, if you can't log in to the web GUI, you might be running into the CSCtb17186 bug, described in this post: https://supportforums.cisco.com/message/676256#676256
