This is sql server 2000 sp4 enterprise edition box.
I see many "Message WaitForChildren: Children persisting. Retry: 4364" in sql error log
but i never seen these errors before.
I know we have 1 table corrupted (happened after the systems upgraded the firewall 1 day ago) in the database but not sure if it's related.
Also i did checked the event logs and there no hardware failures.
Have you seen this error before?
