Problem

The pcAnywhere Thin Host does not start automatically when booting the Symantec Recovery Disk (SRD) using LightsOut Restore.

This is confirmed by running 'netstat -a' which shows that the recovery environment is not listening on ports 5631/5632 (as per http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH106675).

Solution

Currently the only workaround to this issue is to manually start the pcAnywhere Thin Host from the network tab in the recovery environment.
