NT Messenger Service

By wdjacks ·
We are using a Proliant server for our Modem server, separate from the PDC. The modem server sends a message through the PDC to the workstation when a particular process is completed.

Suddenly I have 2 workstations that will not start the Messenger service because "The messenger service terminated with service specific error 2105".

I cannot do a manual start either.

Make sure that netbios is installed and bound to the NIC on the two workstations.

The first answer is right. Here's a more detailed step - by - step.

Windows NT 4.0
--------------

In Control Panel, double-click the Network icon. On the Services tab, click Add
and add NetBIOS Interface.

If NetBIOS Interface is alreadyinstalled, confirm that there is a protocol
binding to the adapter. In both Windows NT 3.51 and 4.0, you can check the
protocol binding on the Bindings tab (in Control Panel, double-click Network).
If no protocol is bound to the adapter, remove the current protocols, and add
them back in.

If this issue continues to occur, follow these steps:

1. Uninstall the NetBIOS Interface, and then restart your computer.

2. Reinstall the NetBIOS Interface, reapply the latest Windows NT Service Pack
if applicable, and then restart your computer.
