LanManServer and LanManWorkstation crashing


We use a program in house that monitors specific critical services and sends
alerts when any monitored service fails. Every once in a while we are getting
alerts that the LanManServ er and LanManWorkstation services have failed on
two servers. Sure enough, log in to the servers and both services are
stopped. They will start up again easy enough but I'm trying to investigate
the root cause of why they stop in the first place.

There are no indications in the Application, Security or Event logs that
directly refer to the services themselves nor are there any errors that occur
around the same time. Yesterday, both servers had the same problem about an
hour apart of each other. A few minutes before the failures, there are
several Info Event ID 17's for Windows Update Agent followed by an Info Event
ID 3 for AeLookupSvc (full text listed far below). Would seem a little too
coincidental that both have the same events running up to their stop times an
hour apart.

Any one else seen anything like this? I already verfied that no one
installed the updates it mentions.


Event ID 17:

Installation Ready: The following updates are downloaded and ready for
installation. To install the updates, an administrator should log on to this
computer and Windows will prompt with further instructions:
- Security Update for Windows Server 2003 (KB932168)
- Security Update for Windows Server 2003 (KB931784)
- Security Update for Windows Server 2003 (KB925902)
- Security Update for Windows Server 2003 (KB930178)

Event ID 3:

The Application Experience Lookup service started successfully.

Gotta hate it when you spend all that time recreating the wheel only to find
that some one already had it patented :-/

Re: LanManServer and LanManWorkstation crashing

Surptisingly my server suffers the same problem, except that the
LanManServer/Workstation services are disabled so they cannot crush.

However when I try to install service pack 1 for Visual Studio 2005, windows
installer eats 100% CPU for about 2 hours and finally fails and aborts the
installation. I read about that somewhere and found out that it fails to
calculate the hash of some 500MB big installer package (because of not
enough RAM, well there's just 1GB physical + 2GB swap and only 300MB are in
use).

I shall try to see if this update will fix the problem.

Re: LanManServer and LanManWorkstation crashing

This fixed the problem:
http://blogs.msdn.com/heaths/archive...ce-pack-1.aspx

Strange why it's been a known problem for a few months and Microsoft has not
fixed the digital signature checking? Also caching the entire file in RAM is
a very stupid idea! But it seems like the file compare command line utility
[fc.exe] is doing the same stupid thing!
