3534 error starting a service
Posted on 2002-05-29
Nightly we stop and restart the apache service from a scheduled "at" job.
On our NTs no problem.
On our W2K server, it periodically fails.
The "bat" job issues the net start command but it does not start - no messages in the event log, etc.
I created a "bat" file which looped doing a net stop / net start. Periodically the net start would fail with the 3534 error.
Noticed that sometimes, even through control panel services, get this error trying to start the service. Try it a couple more times and it works.
