RAS Server Error
Posted on 1998-08-24
I have a program which at a certain time per day get initiated. All this program does is Shuts down the FTP, WWW and RAS Services, copies and appends all the IIS logs to one file, performs some logic to the log files and then starts the RAS, WWW and FTP service ( in that order).
Lately, once a week at random intervals, I get a RASSRV.EXE - Application Error on the NT Server 4.0 with option pack 3
The message further reads "The instruction at 0x77f88ob referenced memory at 0x00000018. The memory cannot be read.
I am using StopService() API to Stop all services and StartService() API to start all the services. Ofcourse. a lot of other initialization is done before these API's are called.
Is this a known defect on NT Server RAS Services or is my program doing something wrong. This message usually appears when I am tryng to Start the RAS service. My Console program is still in the wait loop for the RAS to start.
Appreciate all the help.
