Can't run KPSSVC service on Win Server 2012 R2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello. There is a problem - does not start KPSSVC service,  always shows problem with local server that still cant run this service.
    "Could not start the" Key Distribution  Center Proxy Service  (KPS) ".
    System error 50.
    Such a request is not supported "
    What could be the problem? How to fix it? Google all clambered, but not so much, and there's little information about this service. Does it make sense to remove it, reboot the server and then install again?
    Thank you in advance!

  • This server is to be set to Manual, the error will go away and only when you have a Proxy, IIS or ASP running and during the install the service will be switched to automatic, probably the affected server had any of those components and was not flicked to Manual after the reinstallation which happens from time to time.

    Good day mate
