In my home office I have a SBS 2003 server running.  While running wireshark (packet sniffer) on a workstation in my office I noticed that the SBS server is broadcasting SQL packets on port 1434.  Server is running the desktop version, as I did not install the preimum CD.  The server is running three instances of sqlservr, Sharepoint, WSUS (Not the r2 version) and the SBS Monitoring function.

Does anyone know what would cause these broadcasts?

           Hi blohrer
                Most of the services above work integrated with SQL. In order to determine which one is causing the broadcast, you may stop services one by one and monitor in wireshark if broadcast stopped or not.

Figured it out... First I tried your idea of stopping all the services one by one, but the packets still kept on coming.  Then I realized that the MSSQL Service Manager was running down on the systray of the SBS Server.  Exiting out of that made it go away.  Since the Service manager wasnt attached to anything, I guess it just sits there looking for SQL servers.

I removed it from the startup folder!!

Thanks
