Hi @cforapple

The message you're getting when trying to start tailwatchd indicates that it wasn't stopped fully. Can you try the following and let me know if it continues?

Code:
/scripts/restartsrv_tailwatchd --stop
Then check to ensure there are no tailwatchd processes running still:
Code:
ps faux |grep tailwatch[d]
If there are kill the proceses if not restart the process once more:

Code:
/scripts/restartsrv_tailwatchd --start
