STOP 0x0000000a Error Appears when Remote Command Service Is Running

ID: Q247901

The information in this article applies to:

  • Microsoft Windows NT Server version 4.0


When you are using a Microsoft Windows NT Server 4.0-based computer running the Remote Command Service, you may receive the following error message:

STOP 0x0000000a
(0xc0503000, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x8012fae3)


This issue can be caused by the Rcmdsvc.exe file, which is part of the Windows NT Server 4.0 Resource Kit.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Microsoft Windows NT Server 4.0.


The Remote Command Service (Rcmd.exe) provides a secure, stable way to remotely administer and run command-line programs.

The Remote Command Service consists of client and server components. The client component is a command-line program, Rcmd.exe. The server component, Rcmdsvc.exe, is installed and run as a service. That is, you can stop and start it remotely through the Control Panel Network application or locally through the net start and net stop commands. Because it is a service, it runs whenever the system is running if you configure it for automatic startup, whether or not a user is locally logged on.

A client connection to the server creates a command session, or 'virtual console'. It is not visible on the desktop and does not in any way interfere with it. Up to 10 clients can be simultaneously connected to the remote command server on a computer, all operating securely and independently of each other.

For more information on the Remote Command Service and its use, please consult the Microsoft Windows NT Server 4.0 Resource Kit documentation.
