Unable to open Service Manager Error Code 5 RRS feed

  • Question

  • We noticed that on several Windows 2008 R2 servers in our customers domain the following problem : 

    When loging on,  on the server with a normal account,  it displays  Unable to open service manager.  Error code 5.  

    When you click ok,  the error is cleared and the user can continue working.   

    I noticed this problem on recently updated servers with multiple roles  (SQL server,  Terminal Server,  CRM server, etc... ) 

    Server has following updates applied  :  KB2565063 , KB2830290, KB2829361,  KB2847204,  KB2798162,  KB890830,  KB2804576

    KB2820197, KB2829530, KB2804579.    

    Any idea what might cause this error  ?
