These events indicate a problem with Performance Monitor not being able to
communicate with the Appletalk Protocol. These events are logged in the
Application event log while monitoring Appletalk or MacFile Server in
Performance Monitor when:
- SFM is not installed or started.
- The Appletalk protocol device or File SFM service is stopped.
- You have a bad network interface card (NIC) or network cabling.
- Macintosh seed routing is enabled in SFM with incorrect or conflicting
There are two counters that performance monitor contains which allows a user to
monitor how SFM is behaving on a Windows NT server. In performance monitor, you
can select MacFile Server and Appletalk. These are represented by the
SFMCTRS.DLL and ATKCTRS.DLL files respectively.
Occasionally when viewing a event log on a Windows NT Server you may notice
events that have a source of SFMCTRS or ATKCTRS. If there are a large number of
events it could be an indication of problems with the SFM on the server.
The AppleTalk Protocol is not installed or is not configured properly.
In Control Panel, double-click Devices and check the Status list to verify whether the AppleTalk
Protocol is installed and started. Also, check the event log in Event Viewer for related messages.
If there are a large number of events recorded in the event log, there might be problems with
Services for Macintosh on the server.
