Temp files in \system32

By brian.jacobs ·
On most of my BDC's I am having problems with some type of temp file being created. the format is TMPXX.$$$. The XX is a number that increases every day 01,02,etc. These files are all at least 1mb. The BDC's are all running NT4, SP6a ArcserveIT and InoculateIT. Half of the BDC's are also running DHCP services. All spooling and Virtual Memory is pointed to the second partition. Any help would be appreciated..

Temp files in \system32

Sounds like your BDC are having a timing issue. I have seen those files gererated when the server loose sync for a minute. It creates the temp files to store information that it wants to send to another server, we started getting this problem on bdc when we added some new t1 lines.. I patched this issue by setting up a clean up process in AT

Hope this helps

Is your inoculateIt using current virus definitions and have you done a manual scan of ALL files? The other thing to look at is; ( A few love letter variants can create some strange tmp files...) The other question: does it happen at the same time everyday. What is running on the system at that time (ie. ARCServeIt doing DB pruning...)
Hope this helps! SFO
