Server - Windows Vista Service

Supports file, print, and named-pipe sharing over the network for your computer. If this service is stopped, these functions will be unavailable. If this service is disabled, any services that explicitly depend on it will fail to start.

This service also exists in Windows 10, 7, 8 and XP.

Service name:LanmanServer
Type:share
Path:%WinDir%\system32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs
File:%WinDir%\system32\srvsvc.dll
Error control:normal
Object:LocalSystem

Default Behavior

Server logs on as LocalSystem and runs in a shared process of svchost.exe. If Server fails to start, the error is recorded into the Event Log. Windows Vista startup proceeds, but a message box is displayed informing you that the LanmanServer service has failed to start. At least one service depends on Server. Therefore I do not recommend you to disable it.

Dependencies

Server won't start, if the following system components are stopped or disabled:

If Server is stopped, the Computer Browser fails to start and initialize.
