MMS Service will not start

Thread needs solution

Anytime I try to restart the MMS service I get the Windows error 1053.

I've attempted to reset the Service timeout period to double what it was originally set to, however what's strange is that during a service start, it immediately fails.

When checking event viewer, I can see that Acronis throws an error which tells me there was an "Error while writing to the file". Further in the error it calls out a file, "e:\72\file\windows\win32_file.cpp:247". However there is no E drive present on this machine.

Hi Kevin

Can you please advise what service logon you are using for the MMS service?

Hello Kevin,

First of all, please check if the user account under which Acronis Managed Machine service (MMS) is running has required rights according to the following KB:
“e:\72\file\windows\win32_file.cpp:247” in this case is the internal path of failing process. 
If MMS could not start by LocalSystem and LocalAdmin user please collect the crashdump ( and system report ( from the affected machine and raise a support ticket for investigation.
