This update package fixes the following issues that are not previously documented in a Microsoft Knowledge Base article:
  • If the computer is a domain controller and does not have the World Wide Web Publishing Service (W3SVC) installed, an Error event that resembles the following is logged in the event log every several seconds:
    Event Type: Error

    Event Source: Perflib

    Event Category: None

    Event ID: 1008


    The Open Procedure for service "ASP.NET" in DLL "C:\WINNT\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\aspnet_perf.dll" failed. Performance data for this service will not be available. Status code returned is data DWORD 0.

  • If Internet Information Services (IIS) uses the StaticFileHandler class to serve a large file, you may receive the following OutOfMemoryException exception:
    System.OutOfMemoryException in System.Web.HttpResponseUnmanagedBufferElement..ctor() 
    Insufficient memory to continue the execution of the program.

    System.Web.HttpWriter.BufferData(Byte[] data, Int32 offset, Int32 size, Boolean needToCopyData)
    System.Web.HttpWriter.WriteFromStream(Byte[] data, Int32 offset, Int32 size)
    System.Web.HttpWriter.WriteBytes(Byte[] buffer, Int32 index, Int32 count)
    System.Web.HttpResponse.WriteVirtualFile(VirtualFile vf)
    System.Web.StaticFileHandler.RespondUsingVirtualFile(String virtualPath, HttpResponse response)
    System.Web.StaticFileHandler.ProcessRequestInternal(HttpContext context)
    System.Web.DefaultHttpHandler.BeginProcessRequest(HttpContext context, AsyncCallback callback, Object state)
    fbs.Handlers.CustomDefaultHandler.BeginProcessRequest(HttpContext context, AsyncCallback callback, Object state)
    System.Web.HttpApplication.ExecuteStep(IExecutionStep step, Boolean& completedSynchronously)

    This problem occurs even if there is sufficient memory.
  • When you access the performance counters of IIS or of ASP.NET from a computer that is running the 32-bit version of Microsoft Operations Manager 2005, you cannot access the performance counters if they run in 64-bit mode.
