Server service terminated with service-specific error 2182 (0x886)

  1. The server is running W2K3 R2 SP1.

    The lanmanserver service stopped and attempts to restart it generates:

    Event Type: Error
    Event Source: Service Control Manager
    Event Category: None
    Event ID: 7024
    Date: 3/13/2008
    Time: 5:40:39 AM
    User: N/A
    Computer: CRNTAP57
    The Server service terminated with service-specific error 2182 (0x886).

    For more information, see Help and Support Center at


    Following the link yields generic information and the message that "Windows
    does not recognize the service's error code." (odd since it's a Windows
    service). Further advises to run SC /query <service name> for further
    information. Doing this yielded:

    C:\Documents and Settings\admin-schoquet>sc query lanmanserver

    SERVICE_NAME: lanmanserver

    WIN32_EXIT_CODE : 1066 (0x42a)
    SERVICE_EXIT_CODE : 2182 (0x886)
    CHECKPOINT : 0x0
    WAIT_HINT : 0x0

    Win32_Exit_code : 1066 merely states that the service exited with a service
    specific message.

    What I"m looking for is the service_exit_code : 2182 definition. Technet,
    MSDN and the internet have been useless in finding this specific information.
    (other than to say try to start it, if that fails, re-boot. I need a little
    more root cause info)
