    Memory leak in services.exe

    Hi,

    My scenario is;
    Windows 2003 Server Ent. SP2
    Domain Controller and TS
    2 Hard Disks (200 GB) non RAID controller
    1,5 GB RAM
    SQL Server 2000 Standard SP4
    MS Exchange Server 2003 SP2
    No viruses or spywares.

    The server has been working fine from a month ago, it is experimenting a
    memory leak in services.exe proccess, the past Sunday I restarted it, then
    services.exe begun with 20MB and today it has grow up to 130MB and continue
    growing. I've searching for similar issues and more people have the same
    problem but nobody get a solution. I've checked with Sysinternals Proccess
    Explorer and all seems ok. I get a headache for several days.
    Is there any fix or solution to this problem?, Did anybody get resolve this
    issue?

    Many thanks in advance
    JuanD

    Hi JuanD,

    have also spent a lot of time on our system regarding this issue. In
    our environment the problem was the security log. It looks like that
    some software installation sets the maximum log size for security log
    to 130MB. Resetting it back to 16MB solved it.

    Hope that helps.

    Michael
