Enabled Recovery Mode Successfully but Cannot Revert Back to Non-recovery Mode

I'm running Jira on Windows. I enabled recovery mode after restoring a backup from another Jira instance onto a different instance. This worked well and I was able to create a local Jira user with Jira Sys Admin rights.

I stopped the application via "Stop Jira Service (8080)" accessed via the Windows Start menu. This calls \Jira\stop_service.bat. I removed the Datlassian.recovery.password arg from the setenv.bat file (which I had added) and started the app via  "Start Jira Service (8080)" accessed via the Windows Start menu. This calls \Jira\start_service.bat.

Jira starts fine but the Header at the top says that it is still in Recovery Mode. I'm digging through the bat files trying to figure out why this is happening. I'm missing something. Any ideas are appreciated.

Hi @Thomas DeVoe ,

please check system properties under your JIRA service. The following article could help you on that.

Hope this helps,
