Event ID 3006

I am receiving the following message on one of our servers, which is consistently filling up the application log:

Error read log event record. Handled specified is <value>. Return code from read event log is 87.

I have not read anywhere a reference to the specific return code of 87, nor a solution to resolve the continuous entries that fill up the log. Anyone who can assist me would be appreciated.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Try clearing the event log, then go into the properties for the log you are getting the error and set it to "Overwrite events as needed"

Hello Scaveman,

This event describes the decisions that the RUS made in the proxy generation step, together with a summary of the applicable policies.

Thanks for replying...
gbirkemeier: we have cleared the log multiple times & "Overwrite events as needed" was already selected

Jay Jay70: looks like some of the listings note a hotfix for W2K SP3, but we're already running SP4. Trying to get to info on the hotfix anyway from MS.

engineer dell: will review your suggestions to see if any post SP4 hotfixes are not yet applied. one question on the RUS--> if the server in question is NOT the exchange server, will the troubleshooting steps for RUS still be necessary?

Thanks to all!
Yes, it would be necessary depending on what is the source of that event ID, source could be any one of the following;

Microsoft Search
SNA Netview Alerter
Which one shows up in your log ?
