Subject event log error 251
Author Robert martin

I have been looking at a clients machine via ts to see why they are
experiencing crashes. In the event log I found the following ....

The description for Event ID ( 251 ) in Source (
FirebirdGuardianDefaultInstance ) cannot be found. The local computer
may not have the necessary registry information or message DLL files to
display messages from a remote computer. You may be able to use the
/AUXSOURCE= flag to retrieve this description; see Help and Support for
details. The following information is part of the event: Server Started:
Guardian starting: C:\Program Files\Firebird\Firebird_1_5\bin\fbserver.exe‚.

The machine is a Windows 2003 Server Standard Edition SP 1. It is
running an older install of Firebird ( super server.
Everything generally runs ok but some days they have repeated crashes.
The system is running TS with up to 20 users. It has 2GB of RAM and
doesn't seem to run out of RAM.

Does anybody know what this message means? I believe the message file is
there and the correct version.
