Cisco UP Presence Engine [STARTING] / Does Not Start

Hi everyone,

I am installing a new Presence cluster and have it tied to a CUCM server.

CUPS 8.6.5 / CUCM 8.6

For some reason, the Cisco UP Presence Engine on the publisher server will not stay up. It says STARTING... then goes to STARTED.... then it goes off again and says STARTING.... sooner than later it just stops attempting to start and goes to not started status.

The service is always up and running on the subscriber node.

Any idea what I should be looking for?

Another observation -

As soon as the service up timer hits 2 minutes and 2 seconds the service goes to NOT RUNNING.

Message from CUPS System Dashboard: The CUCM has changed. Try to restart presence engine. It also says: AXL failure with date from upgrade. On the other hand, System CUCM Publisher configuration says:


I know! . And a tried this multiple times . But no success with restarting the hole machine.

From Dashboard i have to restart the following service:
