Recurring lsass memory alert from previous day

For the last couple of weeks I've been getting daily lsass.exe memory alerts from our sbs 2003 server each at the same time from an alert that occurred on 11/04/2010.  Copied the email alert from today referencing the earlier date and time.  

"Alert on ASISERVER at 11/04/2010 11:49:36 AM

The lsass.exe process is allocating more memory than usual.

Use Task Manager to view the top processes by CPU or memory usage. If a service or process appears to be using an unusual amount of resources, try stopping and then restarting it."

You can disable this alert or change its threshold by using the Change Alert Notifications task in the Server Management Monitoring and Reporting taskpad.

What would be causing the server to keep re-sending this alert every day when it occurred 2 weeks ago??

This repeated alert has disappeared after a server restart.  There doesn't seem to be an option to set 'repeat alert' in the Alert Notification settings.

It sound like you may benefit from upgrading the RAM on your server, but here's the official MS KB:

Thanks - but it's already got 4GB installed with the /3GB switch included in the boot.ini.   However the problem is that the alert which happened on the 11th keeps getting re-issued to me, the alert isn't happening every day just a repeat alert.

Ahh, if it's only the alert that bothers you, go to Server Management / monitoring and reporting / change alert notification, and change the alert for that service.

Thanks again - though I'm after a possible solution as to why the alert is repeating itself from the 11th.

It's repeating itself beause it set to repeat itself in the Alert Notification settings.

I'm sorry I can't find that option in the settings - could you please point it out to me?
