JSI Tip 2791. Your Windows 2000 NetLogon service does not start, Event IDs 2114 and 7024 are posted?

Even though you have the Startup Type of the NetLogon service set to automatic, it does not start. Your event log contains:

Event Type: Error
Event Source: NETLOGON
Event Category: None
Event ID: 2114
Description: The Server service is not started. 

Event Type: Error
Event Source: Service Control Manager
Event Category: None
Event ID: 7024
Description: The Netlogon service terminated with service-specific error 2114.
When you try to manually start the NetLogon service, you are successful.

You, or an application install, modified the DependOnService value of the NetLogon service, and failed to include LanmanServer and LanmanWorkstation in the REG_MULTI_SZ data type.

Use Regedt32 to navigate to:


Double-click the DependOnService value name. When the Multi-String Editor opens, click in the box to remove the selection on all entries. Add a new line for LanmanServer and LanmanWorkstation. Press OK and exit Regedt32.
