I am getting the following message in my error log once every hour.

Event Type:      Error
Event Source:      Windows SharePoint Services 2.0
Event Category:      None
Event ID:      1000
Date:            3/31/2006
Time:            12:55:15 PM
User:            N/A
Computer:      D921VW61
#50070: Unable to connect to the database STS_d921vw61_357220642 on D921VW61\SharePoint.  Check the database connection information and make sure that the database server is running.

The server is running, and the internal website is working fine.  I don't even know what this database is, as the assigned content database is STS_D921VW61_1.
