We are getting memory parity errors on a regular basis, and could do with some help please.

We are running Windows server 2003 web edition, and the log says :

Background intellingent transfer servive hung on starting (this seems to happen on a regular basis).

Any help appreciated

Thanks

Hi Just found out that Background intelligent transfer service is not even installed on our machine.

Could this explain why we get the problems ?

Why didn't microsoft ask us to check this ????

DOHHHHHHH

will keep you updated !

We have solved the problem, but the solution was unrelated to the answer given.

We looked on the dell sever problem web site, and found that if a local network card
is fitted it should not be fitted in slot 5 or 6 (ours was 5) as it could give the memory parity error.

We moved the card to slot 1 and everyhing has worked fine since.

Because there was only one suggestion I have decided to award the poits to Microtech

Many thanks
