OpenSSH service won't start on windows 2012

I have installed the latest version on windows 2012 64bit server, it runs correctly before the server restart, after the server restart, the service can not start, and here is the detailed message in event viewer:


The description for Event ID 0 from source OpenSSHServer cannot be found. Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your local computer or the installation is corrupted. You can install or repair the component on the local computer.


If the event originated on another computer, the display information had to be saved with the event.


The following information was included with the event:


OpenSSHServer: PID 6796: `OpenSSHServer' service stopped, exit status: 255


Anybody can help here is much appreciated...

Check if your service account

Check if your service account is still member of local admin group. There may be a group policy kicking it out of that group.
