I am facing the issue while installing the standalone preview service for web 8.1 in a distributed environment.
My requirement is to have separate CM and CD server as distributed architecture. I have installed Web 8.1 on CM server, it is working and I am able to create items in the CMS like publications, schemas, components etc.
Now i am trying to configure content delivery on a separate server in which i have installed the Deployer service, Discovery service, Session Content services which are running as shown below:-
Issue is occurring while starting the preview service. Not able to connect to port 8083 as shown below
I have checked the port and 8083 is not used by any other process by powershell command like below screenshot
Also i am sure that no firewall is preventing the port 8083 on my server. Even though i have made an entry in windows firewall inbound rule for 8083 port to allow for tcp connection like below
I have followed the SDL docs for installing the Micro services as standalone Installing the Preview Service
Any help or pointer will be highly appreciated.
Any URL or pointer for implementing Web 8.1 in distributed architecture will very helpful.
