  • Error starting VNC service

    I have a machine running VNC, a 2000 pro box I believe, and I am having trouble accessing it.

    I have tried restarting the vnc service with a remote mmc to services, but I get the following error:
    Code:
    Could not start the VNC Server Version 4 service on MACHINENAME
    
    Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion
    and then
    Code:
    Unable to query status for service VNC Server Version 4. The remote connection on MACHINENAME has been broken.
    Code:
    The system encountered the following error while reading the list of services on MACHINENAME
    
    Error 6: The handle is invalid.
    Then all the services disappear.

    I have also tried:
    Code:
    psexec \\machinename cmd
    net start winvnc4
    which gives the following error
    Code:
    The service is not responding to the control function.
    Then I get
    Code:
    Error communicating with PsExec service on soupdragon2
    The specified network name is no longer available
    Any ideas how I can fix this and get my vnc back short of rebooting? (people are using this with long running processes so I am not in such an easy position to reboot)

    I think rebooting is your only option and if that fails I think it's a re-install. Can you not schedule the reboot during non business critical hours or even give users advance notice of the reboot?
