Hi
SQL server 2000. In enterprize manager I can see a process, the host name for this is not a machine in my network. I cant ping to this name. Not sure if this is a machine outside the network but connected through VPN, or this is some automated job. I have stopped all the scheduled jobs on server still the process is appearing. Even if the process is killed, it starts again in few minutes. Is there anyway to identify the source of this process? I have the host name - this is the name of a PC used long time back in our network but the PC doesnt exist in the network anymore. Network library is shown as LPC. Any ideas?

Thanks,

LPC means it's using the (local) shared memory, so it's a process on the box itself.

Hi angelIII

Thanks for this information. Is there anyway to identify the actual application which triggers this process? I have disabled all sql server scheduled jobs, I have nothing in windows scheduled tasks. No user defined services also enabled. Any other place to check?

Thanks

It can very well be a service that would be constantly retrieving data from the SQL server, Try looking for the same process id in the regular windows task manager and the Event logs too
