RPCServ.exe consumes memory at a constant rate. When it reaches about 450 MB, cluster admin becomes unresponsive, OWA clients have long connections times, etc. MSearch resource starts failing and we start seeing event:
Event Type: Warning Event Source: W3SVC Event Category: None Event ID: 1010 Date: 7/15/2009 Time: 9:27:54 AM User: N/A Description: A process serving application pool 'ExchangeApplicationPool' failed to respond to a ping. The process id was '7376'.
In our case we have also seen many postgres.exe using CPU each during this issue. 3 active 1 passive exchange 2003 SP2 cluster. Only two virtual servers are affected out of the 3.
Take Groupshield McAfee Resource offline and bring back online.
However, within 24 hours it is back to consuming too much memory and the workaround has to be repeated. :eek:
Is anyone seen this issue? Does anyone have a resolution for this?
