I am trying to configure a SharePoint 2010 server but is giving configuration failed message, as it could not get SharePoint Administration Services(SPAdminV4) to start. It is failing to start inspite of every effort.
Any solutions? If it fails to start will uninstalling and reinstalling SharePoint help?

The SharePoint 2010 Administration service failed to start due to the following error:
The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.
Any suggestions how to start it?

The password has not changed. The server has SharePoint 2010 and project server 2010 installed. Will uninstalling and reinstalling them help? Also if SharePoint is to be unistalled and reinstalled, is it necessary to uninstall and restall project server?

we are having the same issue with our SharePoint 2010 Server. We have SP1 with CU Feb 2012 installed.
For us the KB2677070 Update was the problem. After we removed it our SPAdminV4 Service was running again.
Does some have the same Error?

I can confirm that KB 2677070 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2677070) will break your Sharepoint 2010 farm *if* your Sharepoint servers do not have internet connectivity and are not able to retrieve the updated certificate trust lists.
We have seen this happen over the weekend on a number of Sharepoint farms where both the Claims To Windows Token service and the Sharepoint Administration service were unable to start unless we either removed this update or allowed the machines to connect out to the internet.
Thursday, June 21, 2012 7:49 PMThis hit on one of our servers in the Sharepoint farm, and ultimately was due to a proxy not being set on that server (netsh winhttp set proxy), so if you are using proxies, check that. Would've been a tough one to figure out if not for this post. Thanks!

This post solved my issue after more than 20 hours trying to figure out what it was.
My application servers for Sharepoint do not have access to the internet.
MANY thanks for this post!

i had the same issue with our Server. I removed KB2677070 from server and the problem was resolved.
This post solved my problem and saved my time.
Thanks a lot, Arash

We have the same issue here. CA server not internet connected and started getting this error after installing kb2677070. I have followed your adice and removed the update (via Control panel, Progams and features, Uninstall and update). I then restarted the timer service and restarted the machine.
Problem is I stil lget the same error when trying to start the Sharepoint 2010 Administration service:
Windows could not start the Sharepoint 2010 Administration service on SERVERNAME. Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control in a timley fashion.
I have also run the Psconfigui.exe again and dont get any errors.
Is there something i've missed or is it possible there are other issues here?

OK, so the solution was to update the local group policy. Details:
