"Fatal System Error: 0x00000093" Error Message When You Install Apache SNMP on IBM WebSphere Application Server

Applies to: Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition (32-bit x86)Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition (32-bit x86)


If you are running IBM WebSphere Application Server, and you install the Apache Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) protocol, you may receive the following error message on a blue screen:
Fatal System Error: 0x00000093 (0x000006DC,0x00000001,0x00000000,0x00000000)
Then, the IBM HTTP service does not start.


This problem occurs because the Afpa.sys driver frees its system resources before all the processing threads have completed.


To work around this problem, modify the Httpd.conf file. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, point to Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Notepad.
  2. On the File menu click Open.
  3. Locate the systemdrive\IBM HTTP Server\conf\ folder, where systemdrive is the drive where Windows Server 2003 is installed.
  4. Click the Httpd.conf file, and then click Open.
  5. Scroll to the end of the file, and then search for a line that contains the following:
    Alias /IBMWebAS/ "C:/WebSphere/AppServer/web/"
  6. Delete any characters that appear before the word "Alias." The line will then contain only the following:
    Alias /IBMWebAS/ "C:/WebSphere/AppServer/web/"
  7. Save the file.
  8. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
  9. Double-click Administrative Tools.
  10. Double-click Services.
  11. Start the IBM HTTP service.
