If you try to install Microsoft Message Queuing, also known as MSMQ, 2.0 on a Domain Controller, the installation may fail, and you may receive the following error message:
0xC00e0013- Unable to establish connection with Active Directory. Verify that there are sufficient permissions to perform this operation.
If Message Queuing 2.0 is already installed, you cannot restart the service, and the following event is logged in the Application Event Log:
Event ID: 2063

Unable to successfully complete initialization of the Queue Manager. Message Queuing may function in an unpredictable fashion.


According to Microsoft Knowledge Base article 191989  ( ) , error 0xC00e0013 is a generic error. This error can occur if several configuration settings are not set correctly. Verify that the permissions on the following items are set correctly:
  • The MsmqServices object in Active Directory
  • The user who is attempting the installation
  • Domain Name System (DNS)
  • The global catalog
If the permissions are set correctly, and if the problem still occurs, the problem may occur because of a malformed subnet object within Active Directory.

To work around this problem, follow these steps on the Domain Controller:
  1. Open Active Directory Sites and Services.
  2. Click to expand Sites.
  3. Click to expand the site name where the appropriate Domain Controller is located.
  4. Click to expand the subnet directory. A typical subnet object appears in the form\21.
  5. If any subnet objects are malformed, delete them. In addition, if you use multiple Domain Controllers, force replication.


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.


To reproduce this behavior, add conflicting subnet information inside DNS.

If error logging is enabled, you may see symptoms that are similar to the following in the Message Queuing 2.0 error log:
