From a support forum post:

First thing I recommend you is to optimize memory configuration on the
Server. Please refer to ME815372 (How to optimize memory usage in Exchange Server 2003) and ME823440 (Use of the /3GB switch in Exchange Server 2003 on a Windows Server 2003-based system).

For 2012 event, this basically is an error that the network driver is giving SRV on the send IRPs. Perhaps 3rd party network software that is bound to the server. You can see this by checking the following registry key:

In another support forum, a user discovered that this problem was caused by the Trend Micro Client Security Agent installed on that system. The firewall network driver installed by the Trend Micro client would interfere with the normal network traffic.
In my case, removing the Service Advertising Protocol from adapter stopped the warnings from appearing.
See ME898060 for a possible cause of this event's appearance.
