You should get this error when MSSQLServerADHelper service is set to automatic or you started the service manually.

The MSSQLServerADHelper service should be set to manual. SQL Server will start and stop the service itself when needed. You should let SQL Server manage it.


The MSSQLServerADHelper service performs two functions:

  • It adds and removes the objects used to register instances of Microsoft® SQL Server™ 2000 relational database engine or Analysis server in the Microsoft Windows® 2000 Active Directory™.
  • It ensures that the Windows account under which a SQL Server service is running has permissions to update all of the Active Directory objects for the instance, as well as any replication publications and databases for that instance.

The service is dynamically started by an instance of SQL Server or the Analysis Manager when needed. The service is stopped as soon as it has completed its work.
