Event ID 1003Locked
Is there any good (read simple and effective) way to research what causes 1003 errors in the Application logs of servers. I seem to get them all the time on certain machines, but the text in the event is fairly worthless. I’m getting this one every minute on one box:
The object length of an object returned by Extensible Counter DLL “usrPerf” for the “SHM” service was not correct. The sum of the object lengths returned did not match the size of the buffer returned. Performance data returned by counter DLL will be not be returned in Perf Data Block. Count of objects returned is data DWORD 0.
I know that the SHM service has something to do with a 3Com System Hardware Monitor, but I can’t find any service called SHM, and even renaming a system file (shm.sys) did me no good. This is just the latest example–I get these events on lots of machines but it’s always a different service and it’s always something that is impossible to find!
