The sc command, (service control manager), takes 3 minutes and 30 seconds to create a service on Windows 8.1. and 2012R2

    Question

  • Unique circumstance: SC create This takes 3 minutes and 30 seconds on one domain when
    using Windows 8.1 & 2012R2.  We have two domains:  D1.com
    and D2.D1.com.  If we place a Windows 8.1 or 2012R2 VM on the D2.D1.com
    domain and run the sc command to create a service using a D2.D1.com domain
    account it will take 3 minutes and 30 seconds to create the service.  It
    will create the service successfully, but will take 3 minutes and 30
    seconds.  If we use the sc command to create a service using the obj=
    parameter and use an account which is a member of the D1.com domain as the
    parameter, the service is created immediately. Note: using a windows 8 VM
    on D2.D1.com domain it does not exhibit the same behavior.  Also note that
    placing a Windows 8.1 VM on the D1.com domain does not exhibit the same
    behavior as well.  Consequently, this leads us to believe that the sc
    command is timing out on the validation of the domain account and then using a
    different validation method which is successful.<o:p></o:p>
