Symptom



When you run the Server Manager Snap-in (servermanager.msc) for extended periods of time, the following Application event log warning is written:

Log Name: Application
Source: Microsoft-Windows-RPC-Events
Date: 6/2/2009 4:54:06 PM
Event ID: 11
Task Category: None
Level: Warning
Keywords:
User: CONTOSO\Administrator
Computer: contoso.com
Description:
Possible Memory Leak. Application ("C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\MMC.EXE" "C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\SERVERMANAGER.MSC" ) (PID: 584) has passed a non-NULL pointer to RPC for an [out] parameter marked [allocate(all_nodes)]. [allocate(all_nodes)] parameters are always reallocated; if the original pointer contained the address of valid memory, that memory will be leaked. The call originated on the interface with UUID ({6bffd098-a112-3610-9833-46c3f874532d}), Method number (2). User Action: Contact your application vendor for an updated version of the application.

This only happens if you are administering DHCP servers.

Cause

The DHCP management portion of the Server Manager snap-in (UID 6bffd098-a112-3610-9833-46c3f874532d) calls DhcpGetSubnetInfo() with a parameter not initialized as NULL. This causes a false positive detection for a memory leak.

Resolution

There is no memory leak or functional impact to this specific condition. This warning can be ignored as long as the UUID is {6bffd098-a112-3610-9833-46c3f874532d} and memory is not leaking from the servermananager snap-in instance.
