spoolsv.exe mem leak after SMS SP3 upg

By cordlapp ·
Problem: SMS (SP3) and Print Spooler ?SPOOLSV.EXE? developed a problem after upgrading our SMS 2.0 (SP2) system to (SP3) where the print spooler begins growing in memory after system starts up and continues to get bigger until all of the system resources are gone usually several hours to a day or so. it is growing in random increments 20+k, 200+k, 1034k, etc (it grew to almost 500MB on some machines). Actually crashes some systems if "print spooler" - spoolsv.exe is not stopped and restarted. Affected Systems: W2K Servers & Workstations connected to both Active Directory Domain and Novell 5.1 Servers with Novell 4.8 Client. This problem currently is not affecting any of our NT4 systems or W2K systems NOT connected to the Domain.

I also couldn't find any post SMS 2 SP3 hot fixes, you may have to report this to MS as a documented bug - do it via e-mail otherwise some engineer will want your credit card number.

We think leak has something to do with the novell printer redirectors and SMS (SP3).

We run a mixed NT Novel environment and were having all kinds of spool problems, this may be totally unrelated but just dropping spool32 into the startup folder, I realize that this isn't the file you are talking about but your problem may be causedby a mixed NT Novel environment, hope this helps...
