"Cannot Copy Barcode: I/O operation has been aborted because of either a thread exit or an application request." - this is an error that I receive when trying to copy a 15 MB file from another computer to the server while at the server.
Brand New Dell server Poweredge 700.
2 nics, onboard intel 1000 and PCI intel 100.
1 nic SMC 100
1 GB Ram
3.0 GB Pentium 4
Dell 25 port switch
Windows 2003 Enterprise Server
I recently installed this server and shortly after the install the users would lose their connection to the server and I could not even open the properties for the local card on the server, it happened to be the onboard 1000 mbps card. So get them moving I put a SMC that I had on me in it and things seemed to be doing well.
However, they have a Access Database that they all use and one user inparticular - alot. When this user tries to enter data and get a report back, she fills in the fields and hits submit, but then the database sits there for a minute or so and it should be instant. THen the field all fill up with null (####) data and she is locked out of it. So she can close it and open it again but it is still locked under her user and then needs to be repaired, HUGE PAIN!
SO I moved the database to another computer and now when I try to copy it to the server for a backup, sometimes it will timeout with the error listed above. I tried copying from other users computer some data and the same. When you watch the netwrk performance monitor in task manager it is only using like 0-1% of the card, and this is at night when no one is on the server.
I updated the driver on the intel cards and have not yet had an opportunity to try that onboard card again, this PC is the domain controller. The Internet card seems to have no issue.
Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated
