SYMPTOMS

On a Windows Server 2003-based computer, you add lots of IP addresses on the network adapter. Then, you may experience one or more of the following problems even if you restart the computer:
  • When you right-click any of the network interfaces, you receive the following error message:
    An unexpected error occurred.
  • You cannot display the details of the events in the event log. Additionally, you receive the following error message:
    No properties are available on this object
  • You cannot display the event properties by double-clicking the event in Event Viewer.
  • When you type Tasklist.exe /svc at the command prompt and then press ENTER, you receive the following error message:
    Error: No such interface supported
  • If you add Device Manager to the Microsoft Management Console (MMC), the toolbar is displayed correctly. However, the details pane is blank.
  • An access violation occurs in the ole32!DsaValid method of the Network Connections service (Netman.dll). The Network Connections service (Netman.dll) runs in the context of the Service Host Process (Svchost.exe).
  • You can start Windows Internet Explorer, but then Internet Explorer closes immediately. If you attach a debugger to the Iexplorer.exe file, you receive the following error message in the debugger when Internet Explorer closes:
    0x000006B5 - RPC_S_UNKNOWN_IF
    The interface is unknown.
  • When you connect to any namespace in Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) Tester (Wbemtest.exe), you receive the following error message:
    Error Number: 0x80004002
    Facility: <Null>
    Description: No such interface supported
  • When you start Windows Management Instrumentation Management (Wmimgmt.msc), the General tab is displayed. However, you cannot connect to the local computer.
  • When you type msinfo32 in the Run dialog box, you receive the following error message:
    Can't Collect Information
    Cannot access the Windows Management Instrumentation software. Windows Management file may be moved or missing.
The number of IP addresses rests on the number that is used in each octet of the address (for example, 1.1.1.1 vs. 192.168.123.123). But, the number of IP addresses was reported at approximately 2,000 to 2,500.

Note These issues do not occur on a Windows 2000-based computer.

CAUSE

When so many IP addresses are configured, data corruption occurs. Therefore, the Network Connections service (Netman.dll) crashes.
