I actually executed ssh-host-config and chose to create the NT
service and both the sshd and sshd_server users. Everything looks
exactly the same as in my WinXP succesful installation. However, on my
Win2003, when I run "cygrunsrv.exe --start sshd", I always get
immediately the 1053 error. The cygrunsrv process stays running, but the
NT service appears for ever as "starting". At the Windows Event Viewer,
I can only see "The CYGWIN sshd service was successfully sent a start
control.", but nothing else. No file /var/log/sshd.log is not created.
Is there anything else I can check?

Using 'openssh-host-config' is the only documented, supported
approach to setting up a Cygwin openssh server. If you follow
instructions from other locations, then you need to ask for
assistance at those locations. The documentation for the Cygwin-specific
openssh setup begins in /usr/share/doc/Cygwin/openssh.README.

I always get "1053 did not start in a timely fashion" immediately on
clicking on the Windows service "start" button. I tried with both
enabling and disabling the privilege separation.
I don't think I have to follow the instructions at
