The server service was unable to map error code 998.


I've got the following annoying warning message on my win2k3 r2 DC. The warning started showing up on boot up after upgrading from Windows 2000 to Windows 2003. Any ideas would be apprecaited.

Thinking about it I think the warning started showing up after I followed the instructions in this document:

I was getting some DCOM errors caused by RSM and this document fixed it but it *think* may have caused the problem above (I might be wrong though). To fill you in a bit more i'm running Veritas 9.1 on this DC.

Hi emailjws,

Have a look at this;

It seems your hunch could be correct about it being veritas related - there is mention of it there (coupled with a HP printer)

Seems an update of veritas fixes the issue, but I included the link incase there is something else there that may be relevant to you

Hope that helps,

Hi Red,

Thanks for the response. I saw that article when I was searching for the error, I checked and I am running all the latest patches for Veritas (9.1). I'm planning to upgrade to 10d later this week, maybe that will fix it?

Thanks again.

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

10d fixed it.
