Server Error:Cannot Write or create file (file or disk is read only)

HI

I all of a sudden am getting this error message when I try to save a document
I also get it when  try to refresh  the database from the template

I did run a compact and fixup
I also checked the ACL

The unix guys have checked the permissions and all seem to be well(Still Looking)
I am getting this in the Address book(names.nsf) on the server


Regards

James

That's not a leaky version AFAIK. If it's Win*, check regularly the memory usage of the Domino processes, and you might increase swap space. You could check the release notes of R5 whether there are leaks reported closed.

It's Unix, so please check that the owner and group of the files under Domino management are all owned by the Notes-user. Was the server restarted recently??

Without a restart of the server? How odd.

Is the Unix disk full?

Maybe a restart might help...

Try running compact with -C options.. Also run updall so that view doesn't have any corrupted indexes

PS: Sometimes this could be related to hardware or OS !!

There could be variety of possibility that antivirus is holding some portion of the db and not releasing it or it could be the backup software...Try shutting down this s/w !

Do check your server log regularly! When limits are exceeded, restart the server. And, get a newer release of the S/W, if available. There were versions of Domino with nasty memory leaks. What's your version?

5.012 I believe or maybe 5.0.11

Check you names.nsf views count and see if the count is OK (compare with the template).

Secondly, check if there are any other processes using high cpu priority.. shut it down or change it to normal.

Third, Run updall -R on names.nsf

And one more.. 5.0.12  seems to have this memory problems.. either upgrade to next version or downgrade to the one which worked...this will be the last resort
