We currently have a stand alone instance of WSS 3 on Windows 2003. We are seeing a repeated error in the Event Log. The Event ID is 6398 and 6482 and is saturating the app log. It appears Hotfix http://support.microsoft.com/kb/946517 might resolve but want to exhaust easier options without introducing the hotfix to the environment.

Event Type: Error Event Source: Windows SharePoint Services 3 Event Category: Timer Event ID: 6398 Date: 02/20/07 Time: 11:01:41 PM User: N/A Computer: WGE Description: The Execute method of job definition Microsoft.Office.Server.Administration.ApplicationServerAdministrationServiceJob (ID de82c7d5-76d8-4c54-81bc-2dd35824b0b8) threw an exception. More information is included below.

The path specified cannot be used at this time. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070094)
