Various services not starting
Posted on 2016-11-16
Various services are not starting on numerous servers upon reboot. The error is "windows could not start the service on local computer. error 1069: the service did not start due to logon failure.
**It never was an issue since recently. I've had these servers with these services running fine with no problems for the longest time.
** if I blank out the password under the log on tab and start the service, the service runs fine. For some services, I put in the known password and the service starts up fine. But why is it doing that in the first place?
**seems like any service that is a ntservice\user or a service with the log on as, as a local user won't start
**running windows 2012 R2 Standard
**called Microsoft and they said the services are a third party service so they can't help
**called various vendors and they said something in windows isn't allowing those services to start so call Microsoft.
**looked under local account policy and the log on as a service. Only domain\administrator is showing and the add users or groups is grayed out. But this was always the setting and never caused us any issues before.
