Windows Remote Management Service Fails to Start (error 1079)
Posted on 2013-06-20
When I try to start the WinRm service, I receive the following error:
"Windows could not start the Windows Remote Management (WS-Management) service on Local Computer.
Error 1079: The account specified for this service is different from the account specified for other services running in the same process."
The logon account is 'Local Service.' Can anyone tell me what other services run in the same process as WinRm? Or if the logon account is incorrect? Every article I've been able to find about 1079 is related to an incorrect logon account, but as far as I can tell, Local Service is correct.
Can anyone shed some light on this?
