We have a couple of wms services. Some of them were used in Cache Filler Service and Cache Filler Manager to generate WMTS. Later on, these WMS are removed from these services and their instances are deleted (service + source instances) and all their references are removed. However, these Cache Filler services now using other WMS; however, we notice that when we start the cache filler/cache filler manager, these old services somehow get requests and show unsuccessful request entries in the event viewer.
We try to stop it from showing up again in the event viewer, but could find where they still get referenced.
Appreciate all suggestions and ideas.

This is very complex, I've been fighting on this several hours time ago. The reason probably is that the WMS service has been call from another WebGIS Server that has de Gecapabilities service running. Then the capabilities service is doing a call each "x" minutes depending of the configuration.
If you know what webgis server can be, you only need to delete folder store of capabilities service. In case you don't know what webgis service is causing it, you may take a look into IIS log, detect the IP that is doing the request and configure it as forbidden on IIS default web site.
I don't know if there are more options, but my suspicious is on Capabilities service

Thank you for looking into my issue. I did check the capabilities service, but there is no reference to the services.
Really not sure where to look.

Have you had look at IIS logs as Josep suggested? You will see which IP (computer) is trying to reach this service.
