event 11 (dhcp memory leak message) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Windows Server 2008 R2

    for some days now i've been getting event 11 in my PDC:

    Possible Memory Leak.  Application ("C:\Windows\system32\mmc.exe" "C:\Windows\system32\dhcpmgmt.msc" ) (PID: 5536) has passed a non-NULL pointer to RPC for an [out] parameter marked [allocate(all_nodes)].  [allocate(all_nodes)] parameters are always reallocated; if the original pointer contained the address of valid memory, that memory will be leaked.  The call originated on the interface with UUID ({6bffd098-a112-3610-9833-46c3f874532d}), Method number (2).  User Action: Contact your application vendor for an updated version of the application.

    whose vendor is it referring to? Microsoft?

  • Hi Reno,

    As link above mentioned, this issue occurs during the portion of the UID calls an internal structure with a parameter not initialized as NULL. This causes a false positive detection for a memory leak.

  • hi,

    well the resolution is a bit of a catch 22 thing. the event viewer says memory is leaking (possible) and the resolution says there is no memory leak so long as there is no memory leak (!?)

    Resolution
    There is no memory leak or functional impact to this specific condition. This warning can be ignored
    as long as the UUID is {6bffd098-a112-3610-9833-46c3f874532d} or 
    {4B324FC8-1670-01D3-1278-5A47BF6EE188},
    and memory is not leaking.
    

    the UUID is that number alright but how do you tell if memory is leaking?
