Error Server could not be started
« on: October 10, 2005, 08:59:00 PM »

I'm new on the forum

I'm Franch and my english is not very but i will try to explain as best as possible

I buy for a customer of mine a license of Avast Standard Edition and i download ADNM

I'll try to install it on my computer (win xp SP2 512 Mo IPCop firewall )
I just want to try an instalation before doing it really

So i use the demo code. I chose to instal MSDE and I create the miror.
Just before the end I've got this message :

Service Avast Management Server could'nt be started error code 0x0000042D

After this it s impossible to open ADNM Console (when i do Detect server there is nothing)

If someone can help me it will be very nice

Because i ve got to install it during this week

Thank you

The error code means The service did not start due to a logon failure.

This basically means that the username/password pair you used during installation was not valid (maybe a typo in the password?)

To correct the problem, go to Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Services, open the properties of the "avast! Management Server" service, switch to the "Log on" tab and specify the correct username/password pair here.

Please note that the account should have administrative rights.

If at first you don't succeed, then skydiving's not for you.

First thank you for the rapidity..

I'm competely newbie in ADNM and not a crack in Lan

So I've got some questions

My configuration is still the same :

First computer where i install ADNM
win xp SP2 512 Mo IPCop firewall IP 192.x.x.10 and a workgroup name, name machine

other computer wich is quiet the same

win xp SP1 196 Mo IPCop Firewall IP¨192.x.x.15  and the same workgroup name, and a name machine

When I log to ADNM Server is blank and detect server do nothing

So i leave it blank and log with administrator

I can detect the computer there is no problem

But whn i create a Package i ve got some problems :

  1 - May i choose netclient or net server Edition (i'm in Demo but i buy standard suite for 22 computers for my customer)
   2 - What are the name and password i've got to write
   3 - Which  @ IP is it ? 

After when i want to create the task :

   1 - how to complete login accounts

When I reboot my computer SQL is not open but i say auto start

That's all for the moment......

Because when all will be ok with this very simple configuration i will explain the project with 22 computers (not a lot for you who are used to install big configuration) but there are 3 differents sites and i would like to manage all from one computer if possible

Hope for news

Thnk you by advance
