Had the Agent running manually some times, never found a clue or was able to reproduce it either.
Your hint with TaskScheduler is good, will try that on one of the affected Servers.
Maybe it gives us a hint this time or makes everything more stable, either way would be fine.

Sorry to hear this
We have on rare occasion seen similar issues but have never been able to effectively reproduce this problem. It is definitely isolated to windows and we feel has something to do with running SC as a service.
I recommend disabling service and running SC manually "snapcreator.exe --start-agent 9090 --verbose --debug" and then troubleshooting and checking console messages.
In addition if this solves problem you can use windows scheduler to schedule a .bat script which would start agent upon server boot. I know it isnt as good as services but if it provides solution it is worth it.
We have been spending most of the entire current release SC 4.1 on the agent and have rebuilt the agent and added a lot more error checking and handling for such situations. We feel that the new improved agent will be a long-term solution for windows and unix environments. I know it doesnt help now but I wanted to at least make it clear the agent is our number one priority for the SC 4.1 release.
