We have citrix 4.5 env. IMA service is coming up on citrix server. It's showing STARTING status but not coming up. It gave the following error:-
"Couldn't start the Citrix Independent Management Architecture Service on Local Computer. Error 1053: The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion."
Neither "Citrix SMA Service" or "Citrix WMI Service" is running. Both are in STOPPED state.
I can see couple of Errors Error code: 2005(CitrixHealthMon) in Eventviewer.
dsmaint verifylhc is showing the following result:-
"The LHC integrity has been verified successfully."
I recreated LHC, however no success.. Unable to start IMA, WMI or SMA service.
In registry (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Citrix\IMA\Runtime\CurrentlyLoadingPlugin) value specified is "ImaSrvSs.dll"
Try to stop the print spooler and Citrix Print Manager and the try to restart the IMA again.
I tried after stopping the print spooler and Citrix Print Manager however, no success. It gave the same error and showing Citrix IMA in STARTING status.
It has also put the Citrix MFCOM service in STARTING state.

Do you have any other events in the event log that would help to troubleshoot the problem?
For now, have a look at these articles:
President (MCSE, CCNA, VCP, CCA)
VCIT Consulting - Citrix/Terminal Services Remote Desktop Solutions for SMB
VCIT website My Blog
I will check the other events and will update in the forum...
Just to add, I restarted the citrix server however the service is still in STARTING state and issue is still there.
