Description
An error occurred while trying to start the Windows Deployment Services server.

Error Information: <error code>.
Comments
 
Error code 0xFFFFFBB3 - This can be recorded on systems with multiple processors. The number of processors installed in the system causes the database engine to create too many sessions. The maximum number of processors the system can use is 20. See ME2121690.
Check your Global Catalog. In my case the GC was moved to another location. You can also specify manual servers under the Advanced properties tab for your WDS Server.
The resolution provided by Microsoft in article ME927770 worked in my case.
