Error 1352 SAM is wrong state to perform the security operat

Postby Neeraj Yadav » Fri Aug 29, 2003 11:14 am


I have a problem while starting Kerberos Key distribution service. I get following error.

"The security account manager (SAM) or local security authority (LSA) server was in the wrong state to perform the security operation."

But when I see this security account manager Service from services. It is shown as a service started..

Please suggest what could be the reason and how I can rectify this.

Thanks in advance

I ran into this problem trying to install Exchanger Server 2k. For me, it was due to the fact that I did not have Active Directory installed on the server. Once I installed AD and made the box a Domain controller, the Kereberos key service started up fine.

Hope that helps
