Locked

Service dependent

By jcox303 ·
How do I make one service dependent upon another? For example, some services try to start during a boot before the NtLmSsp service is running. How could I make them wait for this service to start, then load? Thanks!

I ran into this problem with the MSMQ service and SP5 For NT.It caused me a headache or two !! I'd advise doing this on a test bed first -

goto
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\

and look for the keys representing the services you want to delay. Within each one, create a value called DependOnService of type Reg_Multi_SZ
in the text box add the name of each service that must have started before this service starts - note that each entry must be on a new line !! This procedure is covered in depth in the following article in technet
Q193888
The article is a lot newer and more detailed than the one I had to work off!...

Hope this helps.

I'm sorry, I need to correct the question. I need to make applications dependent of services. Exp.

Description:
Application [svchost.exe]. The application was started while the service manager was locked and NtLmSsp wasn't running. If the application will try to remote via WinSock Proxy it can cause a deadlock with the service manager. For this reason the remoting is disabled. If the application is a service, and you want it to be able to remote, make it dependent on NtLmSsp.
