    This little thing has been around for some time
    Any idea why it was never rolled into a patch?

  2. bradley says:

    Because a patch couldn’t enter in those url values.

  3. Pete says:

    How about Event 2424 errors? I can’t find anything how to fix these errors.

  4. bradley says:

    This should be the same fix. Try it.

  5. Pete says:

    I have. I get Event 2424 and 3670 only a couple times per day, not every five minuties. Once in awhile, none at all. In never get 2436 with the fix.

    Isn’t is fix listed in the BPA? Seemed to me that it was, and one of the first things I fixed.

  7. Pete says:

    Actually I found a post here changing the Auto Close option to False on the ShareWebDB in SQL Management Studio. I’m testing it on additional SBS servers now.

    Run the SBSbpa on the box. It’s the best bet for recommended and supported solutions.
