I'm having a problem with the "logical disk manager service"
with the Disk Manager. I'm running Win XP PRO with SP2 on
a HP Pavilion desktop with 1 Gb RAM, AMD 3000+ XP processor
that appears to be running okay otherwise.

When I try to run it ( MY COMPUTER | MANAGE | DISK MANAGER)
I get an error:

pop up: "Logical Disk Manager : the dependency service or
group failed to start"

and at the bottom of the window: "unable to connect to Logical
Disk Manager Service"

The message for the error under the system messages portion of
the computer manager is:

"DCOM got error "The dependency service or group failed to start.
" attempting to start the service dmadmin with arguments "/com"
in order to run the server: {4FB6BB00-3347-11D0-B40A-00AA005FF586}

and with it an additional message from the Service COntrol
Manager:

"The Logical Disk Manager Administrative Service service depends
on the Logical Disk Manager service which failed to start because
of the following error: The service cannot be started, either
because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices
associated with it."

I can't find anyinformation on what to do about the problem. I
get the same situation even in Safe Mode. I have a notebook with
the same OS and when I try the computer management on it, it
shoes the drives on the notebook, so I would expect to get the
drives on the desktop to show.

Any ideas on how to fix the problem???

Thanks,

Frank

Check in services. Make sure the Plug and Play and Remote Procedure
Call (RPC) services are not disabled.

Logical Disk Manager service depends on Plug and Play service and Remote
Procedure Call (RPC).

Make sure that both are set to Automatic and started.

Open Services...
Start | Run | Type: services.msc | Click OK |
Scroll down to and double click Plug and Play |
Set startup type to Automatic | Click Apply |
Click the Start button | When Plug and Play starts click OK

Repeat for Remote Procedure Call (RPC), Logical Disk Manager.

Scroll down to and double click Logical Disk Manager Administrative Service
|
Set startup type to Automatic | Click Apply |
Click the Start button | When it starts click OK |
Close Services

That fixed it! Thanks! I haven't used it in a long time, so I don't
know how it got set to "disable", but that was the problem.

I'm not sure if you are still there... but I've got a simialr problem when connecting an old Primary HDrive from a computer that no longer works, using a USB 2.0 to IDE cable. I get the following message... "connecting to logical drive" but it does not assign it a letter in My computer. Though on he botton right hand corner it says that a Mass storage device is connected it does not appear as a new drive.

Using VISTA ultimate.

I've tried it on another computer which uses XP pro... same issue. Can you help?
