Windows 2000 service starting order

Post by Paul » Fri, 14 May 2004 09:27:04


I have a problem where a Cable login service is starting
too soon and failing to connect. If I stop wait 20 seconds
and then start it wiorks fine. I believe I need to delay
or change the order of starting to allow the network
services to be ready before the Cable login service
starts. I cannot change the dependancies the Cable login
service for some reason.
I have been told that the Windoiws 2000 services start
alphabetically. Can I just change the displayed name and
put a 'Z' in from and will this help.
Any other suggestions, Please?

These may help. You might try making it depend on the 'Network Connection'
service or if you don't need it till after logon then set it to manual start
and 'net start' the service in a logon script.
