    Thank you for the post.


    Can you make sure that the ForefrontRTCProxy service has the below requirements?  If it does not have these requirements you will need to add them. 


    This account MUST meet the following requirements:


    The account must have the “Logon As Service” right. This right will automatically be granted by setup if not already enabled on the account.

    The account must be a member of the “RTC Server Applications” local group. The account will automatically be added to this group by setup if necessary.

    The account must be a member of the “RTCUniversalServerAdmins” and “RTCProxyUniversalServices” domain groups.

  • Hi,


    Thank you for the update.


    As per article, FSCController startup type defaults to manual, however, after installation, the RtcSrv service should become dependent on the ForefrontRTCProxy service, and the ForefrontRTCProxy service is dependent on the FSCController service. Please check if the ForefrontRTCProxy was dependency of OCS Front-End service (RtcSrv), if not, you should add the dependency then restart server.
