On our exchange 2003 SP2 server the log is getting filled up with this message
EVENT ID: 51
TYpe: Warning
An error was detected on device \device\harddisk2 during a paging operation.

Does any one have an idea what this means and what dto do to fix it up.

OS: WIndows 2003 SP1

Thanks

That looks like a hardware error. Hard disk is probably playing up.

would agree, you can attempt a chkdsk from the recov console, but if it fixes it it may only be temporary anyway

We had the similar issue with one of our NAS server and found that it is because of the OS. As of now we are still working with PSS to resolve this issue.

Check the above article to decode the event id 51 so that it can help debug this some more.

http://www.eventid.net/display.asp?eventid=51&eventno=793&source=Disk&phase=1

with that info refer the above article to find whether you can get any solutions.

But most of times it use to be harddisk issue.  If you have any diognostics tool(dell Open manage for dell servers like that) run the same against hard disk and check whether you are finding any issue. If yes then you can replace it.

Good Luck

You could also simply try to put the server's pagefile on another partition of the HD, or first disable it, then reboot and defrag, then enable it again and reboot.
