I only found http://forums.microsoft.com/TechNet/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=389835&SiteID=17ÃÂ regarding this error message and it was of no help to me.
Background: 3rd party program that extracts users from a AD group and manage user creation i a MSSQL 2000 server.ÃÂ Also sendsÃÂ e-mails using the SMTP service. The funny thing is that the program manages everything correctly, but writes an error in the Event log as it exists (below). Job is scheduled with the SQL server agent and runs with a doamin user that has local admin rights. We have the same setup on a testserver where it runs without problems.
Windows server 2003, MDAC 2.8, SQL Server 2000 SP3, .NET framework 2 on both servers.
