Windows-Delayed Write Failed Error
Posted on 2004-11-16
Two W2K machines with SP4 are having the windows-delayed write failed problem when working on files over the network on our file server. The file server is W2K server sp4.
In event viewer the problems's Source:MRxSmb Event ID: 50.
Nothing appears in the event viewer of the server and I have tested the files from other pc's and they open and save fine.
The problem also seems to be intermittent here is the full error "Windows was unable to save all the data for the file \L... . The data has been lost. This error may be caused by a failure of your computer hardware or netwotk connection. Please try to save this file elsewhere."
Of course there is plenty of space on both machines and on the file server. I have found quite a few douments on this error. The documents on the windows website suggest this fault was fixed with sp4 which is on both machines. I tried several of the fixes like disabling the write cache on each machine, it is already disabled on the server. Also from knowledge base article ID:321733 I tried the workaround on the enablesecurity signature and found it was at this value already, ths hotfix is included in sp4.
Any help would be very appreciated.
