After you install Windows 2000 Service Pack 2 (SP2) on a Windows 2000-based domain controller, you may receive the following error message:
This error message occurs after every subsequent reboot, usually within 15 minutes of the reboot.
The system process lsass.exe terminated unexpectedly with status code -1073741819. The system will now shut down and restart.
This behavior is caused by an invalid replInterval value in the Configuration container in the properties of a site link.
To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Windows 2000. For more information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section. This problem was first corrected in Windows 2000 Service Pack 3.
By default, site links are assigned a value of 180 minutes for the Replicate every value and 100 for the Cost value. Prior to Windows 2000 Service Pack 1 (SP1), you can modify the Replicate every value to less than 15 minutes and more than 10,080 minutes. Setting this value outside of the previously stated range produces an invalid value of 65551 for the replInterval value on each site link that is not using a valid value. If this value is changed before SP1 is installed, and is not updated by using the Site Link user interface after SP1 is applied, the value may be invalid and may cause an access violation in Lsass.exe
Although the Site Link user interface may show a value of 15 minutes, you can verify the value by using Ldp.exe to run the following query against the Configuration container for a given domain:
