Event ID 7023 "The Data Sharing Service service terminated with the following error: %%3239247876"

You may see this on Server 2016 which may shutdown all file shares.

This is caused by the UAL Service ('User Access Logging Service'), which is responsible for logging access requests to the Security Event Log coming into conflict with the DS Service ('Data Sharing Service'), which is obviously responsible for file sharing.

They are conflicting as they try so share certain system DLLs.

The solution is to reconfigure both services to reserve their own (tiny) memory space. This can be achieved using the Service Configuration Tool (sc.exe) thus:

Sc config ualsvc type=own 
Sc config dssvc type=own
