Net Start SSHD HELPMSG 3534
I am trying to setup Git on a Windows box and so far all appears to be working … except this:
net start sshd gets the error
When I type
cygrunsrv --start sshd I get
QueryServiceStatus: Win32 error 1062
Any ideas how to fix this?

You can find here the steps taken to solve this issue under cygwin:
Look at /var/log/sshd.log:
/var/emptymust be owned by root and not group or world-writable.
Adjust mode of
/var/emptyand attempt to start
$ chmod 700 /var/empty
- Change owner of /var/empty:
20080217-144416 Administrator <at> a64x23800p /var $ chown root empty/ chown: invalid user: `root'
- root is not a valid user name. Make an educated guess and try again:
20080217-151048 Administrator <at> a64x23800p /var $ chown SYSTEM empty 20080217-151056 Administrator <at> a64x23800p /var $ ll -d empty/ drwx------+ 2 SYSTEM None 0 Feb 17 14:30 empty//
20080217-151108 Administrator <at> a64x23800p /var $ net start sshd The CYGWIN sshd service is starting. The CYGWIN sshd service was started successfully.
Regarding the 1062 error, it reports that the windows service has not been started.
$ cygrunsrv --start sshd cygrunsrv: Error starting a service: QueryServiceStatus: Win32 error 1062: The service has not been started. .. $ net start sshd The CYGWIN sshd service is starting. The CYGWIN sshd service could not be started. # only if the previous section was not solved
Note: be aware that:
- some anti-virus might interfere with that service.
See this thread.
- older version of
cygwin1.dllmight also interfere with the process.
See that thread.
