    I’m not very familiar with IIS, so I’m new to troubleshooting problems with it. But almost every day I have to restart the web server because it crashes. I’m seeing this in the event log:


    Date: Source: Application Error
    Time:

    Any pointers?

    It’s Server2k3 with nothing but WDM and it’s requirements installed.

    Hi,

    This looks like Microsoft DEP killing IIS – go to My Computer – Properties – Advanced – Performance Settings – Data Execution Prevention and select the top radio button. This sets DEP to monitor essential windows services only.

    Thanks should fix it,

    Cheers,

    There are two radio buttons:

    [ ] Turn on DEP for essential Windows programs and services only
    [ ] Turn on DEP for all programs and services except those I select

    I already had the top option selected telling it to only turn DEP on for essential Windows programs and services…

    Thing is, it runs fine for 3-4 days, then it crashes. I restart IIS and it runs fine for 3-4 more days, and then it crashes again. Rinse, repeat.

    If it is DEP, select the second option and exlude the inetinfo.exe. This way DEP does monitor IIS.

    Did you already tried patching windows to it latest patchlevel? By any change do you also see errors in the 7000 (do not remeber exactly which error, but it is in the 7k range), there are a few hotfixes for this error by Microsoft (related to exchange/smtp services).

    I’ve seen the exchange/smtp patches out there from Microsoft. In fact, it sounds like thats exactly what the problem is. However, exchange isn’t on the machine, and when I had posted that message, all patches were up to date.

    I see a few 7023 event IDs popping up, but I don’t see anything relating to IIS out there.

    Ok, so far for the patches.

    And what about DEP? like thinkthin is suggesting (exlude the inetinfo.exe process from it)

    Dep is enabled and configured as:

    Turn on DEP for essential Windows programs and services only

    I’ve run it both ways —

    DEP enabled for all essential windows programs and services. With this setting, you don’t get to specify any applications to disable DEP for. This is the way it’s running now. I don’t believe IIS is considered an essential windows program/service, is it?

    DEP enabled for all programs and services except except those that I select. With this setting, I disabled DEP for IIS (put a check in the box to select it) and it still had problems.
