Error Starting Web Application Service (SPWebService)

  Asked By: Leslie    Date: Dec 19    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 9733

Can anyone help me with a SharePoint "Web Application Service" problem on a
brand new front end web server? I'm not sure what account it is using and what
else to give it access to in order to allow it to start.

I added a new web front end to an existing MOSS farm and the Web Application
Service (SPWebService) entry in "Services on Servers" from Central Admin says it
has an "Error Starting."

Attempts to start it manually using stsadm provisionservice only succeed in
getting it to say STOPPED and then ERROR STARTING again. STSADM
enumerateservices lists the service as "disabled." The error log contains event
ID 7034 for the new server with no associated user and the text "Could not find
a part of the path 'e:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server
Extensions\12\Logs'." (NB: This path does exist) The hive 12 ULS log seems to
indicate that there is a problem accessing the registry.

Does anyone know how I can determine what account the WSS Web Application
Service is using, and how I give it whatever access it needs to resolve these
errors and start properly?
