We have been working on a fix for the SQL Service Manager issues resulting from the application of Service Pack 3 for SQL Server 2000. In order to confirm that our fix addresses the majority of issues encountered, we were hoping to examine a set of netmon traces captured at the time that Service Manager fails.
If you have experienced Service Manager problems and are familiar with netmon, I would like to ask that you please collect a netmon trace and send it to me at my Microsoft email address (the referenced address minus the "online.").
