Hello,

I have a SQL 2008 R2 X64 server, it is running a process engine application framework called Metastorm BPM.

Around 1AM this error occurred as well as we could not RDP into the server with an error of Local Security Authority could not be contacted. The server was restarted and we received the second error below which is filling up the log.

Any ideas why?

We rebooted the server and we could log in and the application is running fine but the logs are filling up with this error.

That does not explain why the system would receive these errors. I have also noticed that CPU utilization jumped to about 60% and memory utilization went above the amount of memory installed in the server which is 8GB.
