Srv.sys should be set to start on demand

I'm using Windows Server 2010 R2 Standard edition as DC and File server.

I have found one warning message (Srv.sys should be set to start on demand) from Best Practices Analyzer.

Please does anyone know how to fix it?

a couple of ways to do it:


In an Admin console window issue the following command :

sc config srv start=demand


launch regedit

Locate the;  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\srv registry key

Update;  REG_DWORD value from 2 to 3

Notice the REG_DWORD value on srv2 is set to 3. srv Should look the same.

3) start services.msc (using start-search box)
find service Server
right click on it, select strat type on demand
