    Workstation Service


    Hello All,


    We have a backup server that over the weekend started having some issues. All our backups were failing due to a RPC error. After some investigation i noticed in our event log we have a bunch of errors starting oct 4th in regards to failing services. The one making the backups fail that i was able to get started by switching to local systerm was the network location awareness service. but my workstation service will not start. I have manually tried to start it and get the "error 1079: The account specified for the service is different from the account specified for the other services running in the same process" message that pops up. I have set it to every option (network service,local service,local system accounts) and they all produce the error 1079. any suggestions on fixing services issues like this? or what could have caused it? there was a windows update the day it started failing but i removed that and the same issue occurs.


    Thank you!

    :)

    Thank you for the information you have provided us. In this case, we would suggest that you restart the
    Workstation and Server services on you J-laptop and check. These two services are responsible for creating and maintaining client network connections to remote servers. Both of these services'
    Startup Type should always be set to automatic. To restart them, kindly refer to the steps below:

    • Click on Windows + R.
    • Type in services.msc.
    • On the list, locate Services and right-click on it.
    • Select Restart.
    • Once you are done with Services, kindly do the same with
      Workstation.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Location service is greyed out

    Hi Shahriar,

    Thank you for responding.

    Sorry for the inconvenience caused for you, I suggest you to try the below troubleshooting steps and check If it helps.

    Step 1: Steps to turn on the Location settings.

    • Login as an administrator.
    • Press Windows key, type Location settings and select
      Change location settings.
    • Check whether Location for this device is On by clicking on
      Change
      .
    • Also turn on Location as well.

    Step 2: And as you are unable to set the service Geolocation service to automatic, I suggest you to run SFC scan and check.

    System File Checker is a utility in Windows that allows users to scan for corruptions in Windows system files and restore corrupted files.

    Follow the below steps:


    • Right click on the Start button, click on
      Command Prompt (Admin).

    • Type “sfc /scannow” without the quotes and hit
      Enter.

    • After the scan, restart the computer and check for the issue.

    Try to set the service to automatic by following the steps provided in the above post by Praveen Venugopal.

    Hope it helps. Kindly update the status of the issue, we will be happy to help you.
