Sftp service terminated unexpectedly.

I'm using the free sftp/scp server. The sftp server is working fine however every few days the service will terminate unexpectedly (error 7034 in Event Viewer. I don't see anything strange in the log.

I'm using Windows server 2016.

Can you advise me how to resolve the issue? Thank you.

  • Yup same issue here. Windows Server 2016 too.

  • Hey so I hope this was figured out for you by now, but I have been having the same issue with no luck from customer support through email.  I have found though that there seems to be a session timeout with the application itself (SolarWinds SFTP/SCP Server).  If I initiate a transfer and leave it alone, I will come back about 5-10 minutes later and the Service Status is "Stopped" and the transfer failed.  However, if I stay at my computer and click on things every couple of minutes or so, the transfer will finish just fine.  This is definitely not ideal and REALLY needs to be fixed since we can't afford to sit in front of our computer for 20-30 minutes waiting for a transfer to every device from the Solarwinds server...Hopefully this is addressed.

  • Same issue here on windows server 2012 R2.

    And indeed, it fails when activity is low, so at night during week-end for me
