Active Server Pages service stopped

P: n/a


Running W2k Server SP4, my application event viewer says that the Active
Server Pages service is stopped.

How and what do I need to do to start the service, and why does it stop?

start happening?

Have you been to Windows Update, and are you completely up to date? I'd
hate to instill paranoia, but this almost sounds like some kind of attack...
have you checked for conspicuous GET requests in your IIS logs (e.g. for
cmd.exe, etc.)?

Do you have anti-virus software? It could be triggering restarts of the
application by touching global.asa.

Are you running anything additional besides IIS, e.g. Crystal Reports
server, cold fusion, JRun, etc?

Also, is "Cache ISAPI Applications" checked within Application Configuration
in Internet Services Manager?

That's it. "Service stopped." Cut and pasted from the

1-I have been going religiously to Windows Update. I
will check again, though.
2- I do not have any conspicuous GET requests in the IIS
logs (the server is our Intranet server). The GET
requests that I see are benign (get this graphic, get
this animation, etc).
3- The server is our "Everything" server. It is
currently our: domain controller, dns, wins, dhcp, time,
backup, anti-virus, file, print, and I am sure I forgot a
few things.....
4- The check box for "Cache ISAPI Applications" is
checked within Application Configuration in Internet
Services Manager.
5- As this is our anti-virus server, I am currently on
hold with Symantec to see what is going on there.

Is there a way to view what fixes/patches I need to
install for IIS? Windows Update does a good job about
the o/s, but I found that it doesn't do checks for IIS,
Exchange, and other servers.

Now *that's* what I call a single-point-of-failure! If you have to
reboot the machine for any little thing you take everybody offline
while you do it. A hacker could wipe out the whole business by
screwing up one machine. But that's how BackOffice and SBS were meant
to run....that's the way it is licensed.

I know it is a single point of failure. I wish I can do
something about it. All hail the mighty budget
constraints! Still having problems with it though.


I understand. Hang in there, maybe someone will come up with
something, it's just going to be difficult with all that on one
machine.
