Application Log Overflowing...

By skivtmp ·
I currently am an assistant administrator for two Windows 2000 servers and about 50 client machines. The domain controller (named server2) is generating over 28,000 error messages a day in the application log. It is causing system slow downs, e-mail server crashes, etc.

The common error seem to be only second apart. They are as follows:

rundll, Information, None, 0, N/A, SERVER2, The FireDaemon process was started.
rundll, Error, None, 107, N/A, SERVER2, Subprocess monitoring failed due to subprocess is no longer active. The subprocess is probably dead. Restarting the process. Error code: 997.
rundll, Error, None, 100, N/A, SERVER2, The service failed to shutdown correctly due to subprocess being unable to be killed. Error code: 5.

There are also some srvmon error messages appearing. Any ideas as to what could be wrong? How to fix it?

I first advice you to apply service pack 4 and all the necessary patches and security patches for the win2k OS whatever it may be sever or professionasl. Completely scan the system for viruses. And remove the unnecsary shares from all the drives.GO through the event viewer . Uninstall the unnecesary tools and driver software like nero cd writer. Uninstall any Time Sycronisation programe.Please get back if you are unable solve the problem.

Firedaemon seems to be a tool used for starting programs and scripts in windows nt or 2k as a service. Try to find out what programs you are trying to start as a service through firedaemon, then remove those programs from startup. Now restart your server and check if you still get these error messages. Once you have narrowed down your search to the malfunktioning program, try to find out if you really need it and if yes, if it is possible to start that program some other way. Maybe you can get an update for that program or maybe you need to start it up with other options? Check with the vendor of that program.

Service Pack 4 and the latest patches/updates are installed on both servers and all client machines. Only necessary software (i.e., exchange, norton, etc.) are installed.
