Event Type:      Error
Event Source:      Service Control Manager
Event Category:      None
Event ID:      7001
Date:            4/7/2004
Time:            10:26:03 PM

Description:
The Remote Storage Engine service depends on the Remote Storage File service which failed to start because of the following error:
After starting, the service hung in a start-pending state.  

I'm running Windows 2000 Server SP4.

This evidently is not a common error. I've searched quit a bit for this error. Of course, I'm willing to give any other pertinent information needed.

Thanks!

Because the auto-start fails but the manual start succeeds am thinking it could be a dependency problem. Remote Storage (there are a few services involved) have a bunch of dependencies, including: Remote Procedure Call (RPC), Remote Storage File, Remote Storage Media, Task Scheduler & Removable Storage.

I'm guessing that whatever is stopping the auto-start sorts itself out by the time you get around to starting the service manually so...

Try setting the service recovery parameters to attemp a restart on failure and set the restart delay to, say, 5 minutes intially. You can fine tune it later.

Service Control Manager, I see, can be related to the 7001 ID, however, it's directly related to the remote file storage service. I don't currently have any reason to use this service. I'm running Veritas to backup files on a network drive. The backups are working perfectly. Should I just stop these services? Will it cause major issues if I did? Don't know, not willing to try unless I get possitive response that I can. This server is on a small network that supports 9 users and is there only server. It's also the exchange server. I'll be more willing to take the risk during the weekend.

Decide if you need and if not disable.

OK...I failed to mention I have to manually start the service and it seems to work fine. I figure I can put a script in the startup folder as a temporary fix. I'll test it the next few days.

You said you need to manually start the service? It is on automatic startup right?

bejayrAuthor Commented:
Yes it is set to automatic. However it doesn't start on its own. I have to start it manually....

I set the recover parameter to 5 minutes. I'll test it the next few days. Thanks!

iD,

It seems your answer fixed my problem. Setting the params to restart the service after 5 minutes did the trick. It was a dependency issue.

Thanks!
