Microsoft Message Queuing (MSMQ) Service Initialization prepares the MSMQ Service for startup. Problems during initialization may prevent Message Queuing as a whole from starting up or may prevent a feature or subset of features from functioning properly.

Event Details

Product: Windows Operating System
ID: 2061
Source: MSMQ
Version: 6.0
Message: The Message Queuing service cannot start. The local RPC interface cannot be initialized. Error %1: %2


Ensure that there are no RPC endpoint mapping errors

The local remote procedure call (RPC) endpoint could not be initialized. Ensure that no other processes are using the RPC endpoint with the name "Qmsvc".

For more information about how to diagnose and resolve RPC endpoint mapping errors, see article 839880 in the Microsoft Knowledge Base (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=107512).


Verify that the MSMQ Service is installed and running.

To perform this procedure, you must have membership in Administrators, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority.

To verify that the MSMQ Service is installed and running:

  1. Open the Services snap-in. To open Services, click Start. In the search box, type services.msc, and then press ENTER.
  2. Locate the Message Queuing service, and then confirm that the value in the Status column is Started.
  3. For further confirmation, run a test application that uses the Active Directory features that you require.
