Issue/Introduction

When we try to start the Symantec Management Agent service, we get the following Windows Services error message, "Error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start."

"Error 1068: The dependency service or group failed to start."

Cause

By looking at the dependencies of the Symantec Management Agent, we found the Microsoft Network Location Awareness service is needed in order to start the Symantec Management Agent.

We checked in Services and found that the Microsoft Network Location Awareness service was not started.

Environment

Windows Server 2012 R2

Resolution

Start the Microsoft Network Location Awareness service.
