    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!
