Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I've searched online, but am unable to find any information; why this error is occurring?

It has flooded my Event Viewer: with an interval of 1 minute, this Error keeps popping up. (i.e. the frequency is 1 minute)

I don't have any IIS installed.

This server is purely a Domain controller and no other role has been added.

Please suggest what should I do?

Server OS - Window Server 2008 R2 Standard Edition.

I realize that you are not running IIS, but it appears other processes can cause this error message as well.
