I have fresh installation for SharePoint 2010 on Windows Server 2008 R2.

SharePoint has been installed but once I run Configuration Wizard I get an error message:

An exception of type system.InvalidOperationException was thrown. additional exception information: cannot start service SPADminV4 on computer

Any idea how we could pass this issue?

There are couple of reason for this type of error.

  • Make Sure Server connected to Internet
  • SharePoint admin service also perform the CRL checks, may be better idea to fix those checks. follow this blog
  • Sometime running the command line tool fix it... run psconfig to create the config db.psconfig.exe -cmd configdb -create -server <SQL Server name> -database <database name> -user <AD user account> -password <AD user password>
