Server hosting Forefront Server Security Management Console 10.5.1241.7; agent deployed on all SCC nodes. The problem we're experiencing relates to the passive cluster node. Within the Application event log on this node, the following 4 events are logged; usually every hour.

[/em]It appears the passive node is attempting to access Forefront data files, accessible only to active cluster nodes hosting the relevant physical disk resource. My questions therefore are: 1. Is this normal behaviour for a passive node, can the messages/activities be supressed and enabled only when the node hosts a CMS? 2. What is causing this behaviour, is this an hourly process controlled by the Forefront Server Security Management Console or the Forefront client? Any advice on this matter would be appreciated.
