Another saga with Windows 2003 Server Event ID 333
Posted on 2011-10-20
After having a mrror set fail and replacing the bad drive, the other good one failed, too. Now the server has developed a frustrating habit. After a day or two of uptime, the system will stall with error msg, "Insuffcient resources exist for the requested service", requiring a restart. Two odd things: first, the shutdown dialog box never retains the reason I select for the restart. On restart. I'm required to give the reason for shutdown again. Second, restart requires a hard reboot. Unless I shut off the power completely, the restart will not proceed beyond the MB BIOS logo. Otherwise, the restart is normal and uptime is normal for a day or two. System Event Log shows that prior to the stall, there is a series of Event ID 333 's, lasting hours. Task manager shows the memory allotment of a process, (usually IE or Outlook- something left open to internet), climbing to 5 and6 times normal. I can't tell if this is a hardware issue or software issue. Any thoughts on which, and how to fix this? Thanks for any help.
