  • In Doamin Controller secedit.sdb crashing

    Hi

    In a Domain controller the secedit.sdb is crashing frequently. In the application logs Event Id 1004 secsrv logs generating every 5 minutes

    Notification of policy change from LSA/SAM failed to be added to policy queue. Error 1816 to send policy change notification to policy engine. (EventID = 1004)

    I have tried to recreate the DB file but it works for sometime and again the issue persists.

    Please help me to fix the issue permenantely

    Is this Windows NT4, 2000, 2003 or a later OS?
    Can you please give us the full text of the events

    What process have you followed? Is it this one: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/278316
    Have you tried this? http://thebackroomtech.wordpress.com/tag/fix/

    Switching to a workgroup will probably fix the issue permanently but may not be what you want to do

        1) What version of Windows Server are you running?
        2) is it the only DC?
        3) What has changed recently?
