Failed error in dcdiag services test RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    we have multiple domaincontrollers distributed in locations.

    All Domaincontroller's OS: Windows Server 2012 R2

    I  didnt find any functionality issues with Activedirectory or authentication.

    but Domaincontroller hosting all FSMO roles gave below error in dcdiag /test:services ( remaining domain controllers dosent have the  error )

    Invalid service type: w32time on 'DCname', current value WIN32_OWN_PROCESS, expected value WIN32_SHARE_PROCESS

    Observed an article 

    https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/windowsserver/en-US/aaee7dec-d1a9-4f8a-a1c1-ee24ff08f074/dcdiag-failed-test-services?forum=winserverDS

    but above article dosent seems to be applicable for Windows 2012 R2 and moreover seen someone ran into errors with other domaincontrollers after running sc config rpcss type=share

    Pls suggest

  • net stop w32time

    w32tm /unregister

    w32tm /register

    sc config w32time type=share

    net start w32time

    It solved the error.

    Note : Ensure to close the services.msc closed if its open , else you won't be able to start the service

    It says

    "When running DCDIAG.EXE /E (or /A or /C) on Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2 (included with the operating systems), you see the following errors against all Windows Server 2003 DCs"

  • Not yet 

    Didnt apply the command since no clarity that the solution is applicable for Windows server 2012 R2,

    Moreover no visible issues reported due to this error  but as per a comment from clint2295760 , he faced errors from other domain controllers after applying 

    rpcss type=share
