can't start network connections service on win2003 with SP2, this is a DC and after a reboot
this service and others like remote call (RPC) which are in automatic can't start.
When we try start them by services console manually appears the error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.
After a few hours I could start all the services and they try to restart the server and did the same.

Can anyone help?

Thanks.

This type of thing usually boils down to a permissions issue.  If the LOCAL SYSTEM account loses rights to files and directories needed for normal operation, then you will definitely see services which fail to start or that exhibit strange problems.

The easiest way to resolve this is to run the SFC /scannow command and wait for it to complete.  It will repair all of the critical elements needed by Windows to run.

Alternatively you could grant Full Control to the SYSTEM account at the root of your C: drive and let the permission propagate down (do not confuse this with forcing replacement of child entires!!), but SFC /scannow is the more secure solution.

SFC /scannow essentially is a built in Windows utility that will scan all critical system files and will repair them if needed.

As with any repair work on a DC, it goes without saying that you should do a backup first, if possible.

This problem was solved by itself, pass few hours we can start all the services without any problem.
How can I prevent this happening again? If I restart the server we'll have the same problem.
After start the services, I see the privileges for the system account on c: root and it has full control.

Thanks.

I'll have to format and install the server.

Thanks.
