2231: W3 event cannot read file 

The IIS web sites that use HTTP rely on several IIS components for their availability. The IIS World Wide Web Publishing Service (W3SVC) is one among them. The W3SVC is responsible for managing the HTTP protocol and HTTP performance counters.  

Event 2231 is generated when the server was unable to read a file. The file is specified in the message. A Windows 32 error is returned from the attempt.  

How could you resolve this situation?

Possible solutions are: If W3SVC is unable to read a file, check if the file indicated in the error message exists and that W3SVC has permissions to the file.  If the file is too big, reduce its size. Check for a specific error number in the event log message. Find out more about that error number.
