The Background Intelligent Transfer Service service terminated with service-specific error 2147500037 (0x80004005)

I just go done installing SCCM on a new Windows 2003 server and I;m getting the following errors upon boot.

The Background Intelligent Transfer Service service terminated with service-specific error 2147500037 (0x80004005).

The server {4991D34B-80A1-4291-83B6-3328366B9097} did not register with DCOM within the required timeout.

These error are followed by two successfully message indicating the BITS has started.

The Background Intelligent Transfer Service service was successfully sent a start control.

The Background Intelligent Transfer Service service entered the running state.

I tried to uninstall and reinstall BITS but that didn't help and the terminal services service is NOT disabled.

Thank you

Could it be DCOM permissions?

Altough I seriously doubt it because this doesn't seem to be Configmgr related issue.

Have a look at this post

here's the relavant portion

Having googled for hours and many dead ends (of deleting files, registering
components etc..), if anyone has the same problem, the answer that worked
for me is:
Start Regedit.exe (from Start/Run)

Locate the registry key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\BackupRestore\

Created the following key:
FilesNotToBackup

so you have this path when finished:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control
\BackupRestore\FilesNotToBackup\

Start the BITS service... no more errors!

I'm running this on a Windows 2003 server and the reg keys are already present. This is happening on all of the SCCM sites to include the primary. The strange thing is that the BITS service starts up ok immediately after the first error message.

I'm still getting this error but the service seems to be restarting ok. Any ideas?

Thanks.

Hi jima101

I'm receiving the exact same error. How did you manage to fix this one ?

I still get this error but not as much and the service does restart right after the first failure so this is on my back burner for now. Sorry I couldn't help but if you do find a resolution could you post it here and I will do the same.

Thanks

And I've never seen it either in all the stuff I've done, worked on.

That error doesn't resolve to anything I've seen othe than Unspecified error :-(

October 9th, 2008 7:39pm

Okay ! Jima101, we're on our own here Wink

Thanks for the update and I'll give my feedback once I've unexpectedly managed to fix it.

Hi Guys,

Okay, I havent changed anything on the server except playing around with some SQL security rights. But I don't think it's associated in any way to what had happened as I'll explain below.

I've rebooted the machine a couple of times during the course of this week and it seems the issue experienced with BITS is finally gone. !

Upon start up the system event log states:

Event Type:Information
Event Source:Service Control Manager
Event Category:None
Event ID:7040
Date:2008/10/16
Time:04:43:42 PM
User:NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM
Computer:RAVEN
Description:
The start type of the Background Intelligent Transfer Service service was changed from auto start to demand start.

For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

This just an informal event with no user action required. The System event log is now clean without any errors/warnings.

Does the description of this Event mean anything useful ?

Please advise.

Hi Guys

I went into the Updates Console, running throught the wizards in there, without changing any settings but simply re-applying them and retyping credentials, completing the wizards .

This seems to have worked...

Hi jima101

I had been receiving exact the sameerror.Try toresolve this problem by changing start type of the Background Intelligent Transfer Service from manual to automatic.This is working in my case!

November 6th, 2008 7:24am

I spend a  half of week to  find answer. Reinstalled BITS and reregistred its libs thousand times, and nothing worked. But when I created this key in registry, BITS started like a charm.

Thank you!
