Only possible to run 23 services under service account


G

Guest

We are trying to run about 50 Services using a domain service account.
After the 23rd Service, all the other services fail to start.
After stopping one, another is able to start.

The same problem occurs on a windows 2003 server, also after the 23rd service.
Is this a documented or undocumented feature?
Is there a setting that can be changed to make this work.
Running all services under the LocalSystem account works, but is in our case
not an option.

Please help!

Any events in the Event logs? Can you use more than one
service account?

There's a limit in Windows 2000 as to how many services you can have running
under user accounts. It has to do with a type of memory call "Desktop Heap"
The hard limit is 48MB. This article explains it somewhat.

Take a look at the data in;
HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\SubSystems\Windows
to see what follows;
