People,

All in a sudden that I see, the time from my Physical box Windows Server 2008R2 is drifting 3-4 minutes, so I tried to restart the time service, but somehow it is having this error:

---------------------------
Services
---------------------------
Windows could not start the Windows Time service on Local Computer.

Error 1290: The service start failed since one or more services in the same process have an incompatible service SID type setting. A service with restricted service SID type can only coexist in the same process with other services with a restricted SID type. If the service SID type for this service was just configured, the hosting process must be restarted in order to start this service.
---------------------------
OK  
---------------------------

Why is that happening ?

This is the script that I run as Administrator but still failed:

net stop w32time
w32tm /unregister
w32tm /register
net start w32time

w32tm /config /syncfromflags:domhier /update
w32tm /resync /rediscover
net stop w32time
net start w32time

pause

Open in new window


this is the error message:
C:\Windows\system32>net stop w32time
The Windows Time service is not started.

More help is available by typing NET HELPMSG 3521.

C:\Windows\system32>w32tm /unregister
The following error occurred: Access is denied. (0x80070005)

C:\Windows\system32>w32tm /register
The following error occurred: The specified service has been marked for deletion. (0x80070430)

C:\Windows\system32>net start w32time

The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it.

More help is available by typing NET HELPMSG 3521.

To resolve this problem, follow these steps:

    Click Start , type regedit in the Start Search box, and then click regedit.exe in the Programs list.
    If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type your password, or click Continue .
    Locate the following registry subkey, and then click it:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\TapiSrv
    In the details pane, right-click ImagePath , and then click Modify .
    In the Value data box, type the following registry value, and then click OK :
    %SystemRoot%\System32\svchost.exe -k NetworkService
    Note If NetworkService does not appear in the %SystemRoot%\System32\svchost.exe -k NetworkService registry value, the problem that is described in the "Symptoms" section may occur.
    Exit Registry Editor, and then restart the computer.

    Note If you try to start the Telephony service before you restart the computer, you may receive the following error message:
    Error 1290: The service start failed since one or more services in the same process have an incompatible service SID type setting. A service with restricted service SID type can only coexist in the same process with other services with a restricted SID type. If the service SID type for this service was just configured, the hosting process must be restarted in order to start this service.

*Before you do anything you should get a backup of your registry
