    Services Not Starting...

    It doesn't rain but it pours

    Just back in after the Christmas break, Raid alarm going off

    The Disk's finished rebuilding now, and all appears to be fine... However, there are 4 services that won't start at startup, and won't let me start manually:

    The World Wide Web Publishing Service service terminated with the following error:
    An attempt was made to reference a token that does not exist
    The Network News Transport Protocol (NNTP) service terminated with the following error:
    The system cannot find the file specified.
    The Simple Mail Transport Protocol (SMTP) service terminated with the following error:
    An attempt was made to reference a token that does not exist.
    The FTP Publishing Service service terminated with the following error:
    An attempt was made to reference a token that does not exist.
    Noone can access my room bookings site now, which is causing rather a lot of arguments

    Tried looking at IIS with the following result:

    Error connecting to whsdell:

    The handle is invalid.

    Do you wish to continue to attempt to connect to it in the future?
    Please someone help? I'm going to play about a bit and see if I can sort it, but if anyone can suggest something, I'd be happy to hear about it.

    Re: Services Not Starting...

    Have you tried uninstalling each service one by one and then removing IIS, followed by adding it back bit by bit (ie no ASP to start with?)

    It sounds like one of the scripting shells is up the spout. IIRC this is down to an invalid registry entry for the shell in the application functions bit in the registry for IIS. The exact problem I saw was one a BizTalk server (don't ask ... an experiment gone wrong that I was asked to salvage) and the removal of services and IIS and putting it back on solved it ...

    Give it a go ... what is the worst that could happen?

    erm ...

    I'll get my coat.

    (backup the machine, the registry, the whole flippin' school, yada, yada, yada!)

    Ok, reinstalled it without asp, and it's looking good, I can't remember how to add asp though... it's been that long since I did it... Can anyone refresh my memory?

    Re: Services Not Starting...

    start > settings > control panel > add / remove programs

    Add / remove windows components > Application Server (hit the details button) > asp.net

    Then also select Internet Information Service (IIS) and hit details.

    WorldWide Web Service and hit details again

    Active Server Pages.

    Click ok and it'll pull the required files from the original CD or from a location that has the files (eg c:\i386)

    Re: Services Not Starting...

    Hmmmm..... what if Application Server isn't in that list? There aren't any details under WorldWide Web Service either :s

    ASP.Net is in services, but won't start due to a logon failure...

    I'm on Windows Server 2000 by the way, not sure if that's different from 2003.

    Re: Services Not Starting...

    Do the services which are unable to start have any dependencies? And also I presume you've tried rebooting the server?

    Re: Services Not Starting...

    Yes, tried rebooting

    the original services I had a problem with are fine now, it's just the ASP, so I can't get access to the WUS and I've had to change all my intranets etc lol

    It's been suggested that I should upgrade to Server 2K3, which I'm thinking of doing, though to save disruption I'll have to put it off until half term.

    just one of those things I guess lol
