MOSS 2007: LoadBalancer.RegisterLauncher failed


Event Viewer of MOSS 2007 server machine filled with “LoadBalancer.RegisterLauncher failed” error after almost every 30 to 40 seconds. Description is as under:

Event Type: Error
Event Source: Office SharePoint Server
Event Category: Launcher Service
Event ID: 6102
Date:  8/18/2008
Time:  8:45:52 AM
User:  N/A
Computer: ABC
LoadBalancer.RegisterLauncher failed:  Unable to connect to the remote server

For more information, see Help and Support Center at


One workaround is to restart the service and this will work fine until the next restart of the machine. Other is to move from Central Administration -> Operation -> Service Account. Select the service “Load Balancer Service” and select the account “Network Service”.
