Event ID 7015 — Basic Service Control Manager Operations

Updated: December 11, 2007

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

red

The basic operations that Service Control Manager (SCM) performs include managing the services and driver services that allow the operating system to start successfully, and reporting when one of these services or driver services fail during system startup. These operations are not associated with any particular service.

Event Details

Product: Windows Operating System
ID: 7015
Source: Service Control Manager
Version: 6.0
Symbolic Name: EVENT_INVALID_DRIVER_DEPENDENCY
Message: Boot-start or system-start driver (%1) must not depend on a service.

Resolve

Change the dependent services

This issue occurs because a boot-start or system-start driver service has a dependency on other individual services to start. (Boot-start and system-start driver services cannot depend on another service, but can depend on a service group.)

To resolve this issue, change the dependency of the boot-start or system-start driver service indicated in the event message text.

To perform this procedure, you must have membership in Administrators, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority.

To list the dependent services for a service and modify the dependencies:

  1. At a command prompt, type sc qc service_name to view the other services on which service_name is dependent.
  2. Type sc config service_name depend= +group_name (where group_name is the name of any dependent service group) to remove dependencies on individual services.

    Note: If the service has no dependent service groups, enter a null value for the depend parameter.

For more information about the sc command, see SC Command Reference Help (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=84961).

Verify

To perform this procedure, you must have membership in Administrators, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority.

  1. Open the Services snap-in by clicking the Start button, Control Panel,  and Administrative Tools, then double-clicking Services.

    Note: For Windows Vista, use the Classic View display option in Control Panel to see the Administration Tools.

  2. Right-click on a stopped service that is not a system service and select Start. If the SCM was successful in starting the service, the Status field for that service will display Started.

  2. Click Event Viewer (Local), then Windows Logs and System.
  3. In the details pane, click on the Source column to view the events sorted by the entity that logged that event. For events logged by the SCM, the source is the Service Control Manager Eventlog Provider.
  4. Review the events and confirm that event ID 7036 was logged for the action taken by the SCM in step 1 of the To verify that the Service Control Manager is successsfully sending commands to services procedure above.
