Windows sharepoint admin service not starting RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I found my SharePoint admin service is not started. when tried to start manually, it is throwing an error saying that it couldn't start.

    Tried troubleshooting : IISRESET, stsadm -o execadmsvcjobs, run configuration wizards, PS config, service sharepoint web services start & stop.

    not able to start to SharePoint admin services.

    Could someone please give me suggestion on this to start the admin service.

    Not tried rebooting the server, as i need prior approvals from my superiors for doing the same.

    Thanks

  • Hey there

    Well Microsoft patch kb2677070 automatically updates revoked security certificates. It lets  Windows Server go out to the internet. But if your server is firewalled away in a DMZ and does not have unfettered internet access, this call to the find the updated revocation list will fail. When it does, the SharePoint 2010 Administration service will not start.

    • Open Group Policy Editor. From start->search box, type in gpedit.msc and hit return.
    • Navigate to Computer Configuration->Windows Settings->Public Key Policies-> Certificate Path Validation Settings.
    • Click on the “Network Retrieval” tab.
    • Check the “Define these policy settings” and uncheck the “Automatically update certificates in the Microsoft Root Certificate Program”
    • Click OK

  • Hello,

    If you are making changes in windows registry (as per given link) then you have to restart the server.
