I have come across this event log entry below. The server in question is a SQL 2008 server running our primary databases. As of now, no problem are being reported by end users. Microsoft has an article addressing this problem but it doesn't state what could be the risks in completing these steps.
Has anyone run into this problem and did the technet article resolve the problem without incident?
