Service Control Manager (SCM) starts services and driver services. It also reports when services fail to start or hang while starting.

Event Details

Product: Windows Operating System
ID: 7041
Source: Service Control Manager
Version: 6.0
Symbolic Name: EVENT_SERVICE_LOGON_TYPE_NOT_GRANTED
Message: The %1 service was unable to log on as %2 with the currently configured password due to the following error:
Logon failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer.

Service: %1
Domain and account: %2

This service account does not have the necessary user right "Log on as a service."

User Action

Assign "Log on as a service" to the service account on this computer. You can use Local Security Settings (Secpol.msc) to do this. If this computer is a node in a cluster, check that this user right is assigned to the Cluster service account on all nodes in the cluster.

If you have already assigned this user right to the service account, and the user right appears to be removed, a Group Policy object associated with this node might be removing the right. Check with your domain administrator to find out if this is happening.

Resolve

Check the settings of the service account and then start the service

If there were changes in the account under which the service runs (for example, the account is different than the default account or password has expired), the service may be unable to start.

To resolve this issue, first check that the service account is valid and then start the service.

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

Check the settings of the service account

To check the settings of the service account:

  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. In the details pane of the Services snap-in, right-click the name of the service you want to start and select Properties.
  3. Click the Log On tab and note the account listed under Log On As.
  4. Restore the default settings, if necessary. For a list of the default settings for system services, see http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=105223. For non-system settings, see the documentation for that product.
