Error when starting SAP J2EE Engine Log Viewer Service



I'm running SAP EP6 SP14.

I need to make the default trace log file on the WAS Server available to the developer's. For this goal, I am attempting to install and start the SAP J2EE Engine LogViewer Service on the WAS. I think I have configured the service.ini file appropropriately. When I register the service, I get a successful message that the service has been registed. The service even shows up in the Windows Service Manager.

However, when I attempt to start the service, the process fails after a 4-minute attempt. I eventually get an error popup saying

"Could not start the SAP J2EE Engine Logviewer service on the Local Computer"

"Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion".

The service shows as "starting" until I reboot the WAS.

The logviewer.bat runs fine on the WAS itself.

I can also connect from the client to the WAS thru the J2EE connection, but that requires the admin password. I'd rather get this approach to work.
