Sharepoint timer service keeps failing. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have SharePoint 2013 and SQL 2012 on a server. SharePoint Timer service runs under the sp_farm domain account. It has dbcreator and securityadmin roles and is member of local administrators' group. But the service keeps failing. When I try to start the service I get an error message "The service did not start due to log on failure."

    I will always have to go to process' log on properties, enter the password again and start the service. Then it starts and after sometime or the nest day when I check it, it fails and it is stopped. I will have to provide the password again to start the process.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you
