Prompted for Password every time/Scheduler exited with a result code of 12.
I had a working, clustered TDP Exchange scheduler. Due to an issue, I
had to reset the password on the node. Since doing that, I have been
unable to get the service to run again. The service will start briefly
and then stop. The Event Log shows first a warning ID 4098 (Error
initializing TSM api, unable to verify Registry Password), and ends with
an error ID of 4099 (Scheduler exited with a result code of 12). I
believe a symptom of the same problem is exhibited when I run the client
manually. When I do this, I am prompted for the password every time.
I have used the UPDATEPW command to reset the password in the registry.
I have even deleted the registry key beforehand so that I can see that
it is actually being created/updated (it appears to be working as
expected). Doing a QUERY seems to work ok as well.
I have also deleted the service and recreated it. I have been careful
to make sure the nodename, clusternode, and clustername parameters are
Am I missing something obvious here? Any assistance gratefully
