Windows XP workstation, server, other services not starting

Hello all,

Not sure which group to post in for XP..please let me know if there is a
more appropriate place to post. Running XP sp2 in a win2k3 domain, and we
have several machines (inluding mine) where the workstation,server,audio,
time and other services will not start. No errors in event log directly
pertaining to them other than a curious:

event ID 4226 TCP/IP has reached the security limit imposed on the number of
concurrent TCP connect attempts.

Tried many different NIC drivers to no avail...broadcom netxtreme NIC.

Could this possibly be due to the XP network fast optimization GPO? We
currently do not have it configured. Seems to have cropped up over the last
month or so and I noticed after I got a new laptop HP nc6400.

Thanks in advance!

RE: Windows XP workstation, server, other services not starting

Hello Liam,

Thank you for posting in the Microsoft newsgroup!

From your post, my understanding on this issue is: several machines has
many services stopped. If I have misunderstood your problem, please feel
free to let me know.

You mentioned you updated Broadcom NIC drivers. Will this problem disappear
if you remove these NICs?

Please try to start services manually and collect the error message:
1. Run command "services.msc" (without quotation marks)
2. Find the stopped services and right click
3. Check whether they can be started manually

You can also run command like "net start lanmanworkstation" to start
services in command line. The service name can be found in service
properties.

I'm looking forward to your reply.

Thanks & Regards,

Thanks Sean

Yes. I can start all the services manually afterward.

The NICs are internal, so I can not remove them.

please advise.

Re: Windows XP workstation, server, other services not starting

Hello Liam,

Sorry for the delay, since I wasn't in the office in the past a few days.

Since you can start the services manually, please check the "Startup type"
in the services' properties. Services like Server, workstation have the
Automatic startup type. If the startup type isn't automatic, set them
manually and reboot the computer. After reboot, the services should be
started.

Best Regards,

Re: Windows XP workstation, server, other services not starting

Hi Sean,

They are all set to automatic...that is the problem. My hunch is that it is
the broadcom netxreme gigabit drivers, but I have tried every version to no
avail. This seems to be happening to other machines with broadcom nics in
them..Anyone have this issue?

Re: Windows XP workstation, server, other services not starting

Hi Liam,

I didn't find any similar problem in our database. However, by my
knowledge, Broadcom gigabit NIC do have a few problems. I think you can
test your problem by remove the Broadcom NIC driver and check whether all
the services are started.

You can also try to fix this problem by using a logon script. In the script
you can write a few commands like:
Net start lanmanserver
Net start lanmanworkstation
...

This workaround is somewhat ugly, however, it can fix your problem before
you have a new driver to avoid the current problem.

Hope my reply could help you.

Best Regards,

Same problem.

I have a brand new toshiba satellite WinXP MCE with the exact same problem.
Windows Audio and Workstation in particular (these are the services i've noticed, as they become obvious in my day to day activies)

Where would I look to find out why they're not starting/what's stopping them?

event viewer?

help?

Re: Windows XP workstation, server, other services not starting

Hello All!

I thought I would just follow up to let everyone know that the problem was
resolved after I installed Internet Explorer 7.

Go figure...seems VERY strange, but unless there was some miraculous windows
update that slipped into my system right around the time I installed IE 7,
that seems to have done the trick. I am going to investigate the other
systems on my network, but since installing it, I have not had a single
issue with the previous problematic services (including audio, workstation,
and various others.)

As obvious as it sounds, I always recommend the very latest drivers for
video, audio and network otherwise...

RE: Windows XP workstation, server, other services not starting

After installed a number of windows updates, the workstation service will not
start.

The server is sbs 2003. I have installed sp2 to try and rectify this, with
no luck.

When I try and restart the service, I get an error 126: cannot find source
or specified file.

In the event viewer, I get a error indicating that the workstation driver is
not installed.

Thank you in advance.
