2003 server event id 1003

I have been having a problem with a 2003 server DC rebooting and am trying to resolve the problem.
I recently transferred AD from a 2000 server, followed all the usual things - adprep the 2000 box and moved all the roles. The old 2000 server is now only a member server. The 2003 box spontaneously reboots and I am having a problem trying to find what is causing it.

The system errors event id 1003  I get are different

Error code 00000024, parameter1 0019033c, parameter2 f78c2ae4, parameter3 f78c27e0, parameter4 bafb4933.

on one occation, and

Error code 0000000a, parameter1 01dc341c, parameter2 00000002, parameter3 00000001, parameter4 8083dee3.

these feel like hardware, but can anyone help me?

I also had a  master browser error just before the unexpected shutdown

The master browser has received a server announcement from the computer CCTST001 that believes that it is the master browser for the domain on transport NetBT_Tcpip_{CF4BAB1D-3678-4450-. The master browser is stopping or an election is being forced.

CCTST001 is the name of the old server. I have changed the registry entry IsDomainMaster on the new 2003 server to TRUE which I believe will force the new box as the preferred Browser. I have also disabled the Browser service on the 2000 member server.
Who is Participating?
Michael PfisterCommented:
Is this a DLINK network card you have there in your server? Either the driver is faulty or the card is bad.

Steps to take from her:
1) Check if DLink provides updated drivers for your network card. If yes, update the drivers and see if your server still crashes. I
2) Replace the DLink card with a good server card, like Intel sells.

The dump shows that the system crashes somewhere around the NDIS functions, a search for m4cxw2k3 shows this is a driver for a DLink network card.
Hope it helps,

Hi smelliesavage,

sounds like hardware for sure, lets start with your RAM as its the most common thing to die...


run this and see what you find

also, whats the exact error you get in your logs regarding that 1003 error

also had a save dump before the 1003 error "Error code 0000000a, parameter1 01dc341c, parameter2 00000002, parameter3 00000001, parameter4 8083dee3."

details of the save dump:
The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck.  The bugcheck was: 0x0000000a (0x01dc341c, 0x00000002, 0x00000001, 0x8083dee3). A dump was saved in: C:\WINDOWS\MEMORY.DMP.

I will try to swap out the ram and test it. The box has been running fine before we dcpromo'd it. Perhaps as a dc it puts more strain on it.

Can I memtest86 in windows, I do have a metest utility by HCI Design which runs in windows. The reason is I am trying to diagnose this remotely
smelliesavageAuthor Commented:
am running the memtest in windows
unfortuntely no, you have to run memtest from boot

have a look at this tool though, i think there may be a faulty driver on your server

this will at least help to diagnose if it is......

this is a good read too, lots and lots of exciting dribble :) :) :)
Michael PfisterCommented:
Following this article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307973/en-us you can configure your system to not automatically restart next time it crashes. This gives you the chance to examine the blue screen. This info can help to determine the faulty driver/system component. Disadavantage: you have to go there to reboot it.

Anyway turn on at least the creation of a mini dump file or even the full dump file and analyze it, see here for how to do it:


The code  0000000a error points into the direction of a faulty driver. found nothing regarding the 00000024 stop code...

Had another crash. followed the instructions for the analysis tool to create debuglog.txt which is as follows (this time a d1 error)

Closing open log file c:\debuglog.txt
was that from the driver verification tool?
smelliesavageAuthor Commented:
no - from the windbg tool suggested by mpfister above

I downloaded the verifier and installed  tool, (requires reboot)
then ran verifier /log to which produced a v large log file which I don't quite know how to interpret. Don't know if I have used this correctly
you can email me the log if you like and ill see if i can make sense of it

Thanks mpfister - yes it is a dlink card.

The server finally rebooted and wouldn't come backup again until I removed one of the disks, and then hey presto - it runs fine. Only snag was it was a data disk and the raid was not workin properly. Thankfully I have been able to get the data disk up and running on an XP pro box and am getting the data off now (THIS IS ALL BRAND NEW KIT!!!!)  I suspect there may be more than one hardware problem here and I am adding another DC AND reset up everything on that using all new hardware. Useful tip re the dlink card. I will give it some hammer in another box where we are not so dependent.

Thanks for hardwork - this is the first time I have asked a question here although I ave been checking the forums for years.

Would be useful to know the best way of diagnosing stop errors for the future. Is the windbg a good option?
Michael PfisterCommented:
Very strange that a faulty disk/controller interfered with the network driver. But of course you never know.

Some stop codes can be analyzed without amalyzing the memory dump, the blue screnn provides enough info, others have to be cracked by windbg. Still its not 100% accurate.
If its a criticial server and windbg doesn't show helpful info  I'd submit the memory dump to Microsoft.
