Front End Service Fails To Start RRS feed

  • Question

  • Okay have the following in seperate servers.

    DC- Windows Server 2003 R2
    SQL 2008 - Windows Server 2003 R2
    Office Communication Server 2007 - Windows Server 2003 R2

    Doing a clean install of office communication server with 'Deploy Pools in consolidated topology'. Did the following sucessfully.

    Prepare Active Directory
    Create Enterprise Pool
    Configure Pool
    Add Server to Pool
    Configure Certificate

    When Starting the services, something odd happened all the services failed to start, In the services.msc i noticed that the service accounts RTCService and RTCComponentService were unable to start the service so i changed it to my domain account schs\administrator (domain admin account)

    Doing so i was able to start all the other services except the main front end service.

    Below is what i get in eventlog.


    An unhandled exception was encountered.

    Restart the server. If the problem persists contact product support.

    Aggregation script failed to register with the server within 30 seconds.

    Cause: Server is low on resources.


    Ensure that the server meets minimum hardware requirements and is not overloaded.
