System log: Event ID 32

Wondering if you have seen this with other intel servers using the SRCSAS144E controller:
After making my server a domain controller, I get the following errors in the event log:

System log: Event ID 32 (occurs 3 times each bootup): The driver detected that the device \Device\Harddisk0\DR0 has its write cache enabled. Data corruption may occur.  

 File Replication Service log: Event ID 13512 (occurs 1 time each bootup): The File Replication Service has detected an enabled disk write cache on the drive containing the directory c:\windows\ntfrs\jet on the computer HOSTR2. The File Replication Service might not recover when power to the drive is interrrupted and critical updates are lost.

I have verified that the write cacheing is disabled on both virtual drives in the RAID configuration.

    Accepted Solution

    Typically, the Active Directory will disable the disk cache on the drivers where the database resides in order to avoid corruption in case of a failure. If such cache is discovered as being active, this warning message is generated.
    As per Microsoft: "This event is logged for informational purposes. When this event is logged, the system administrator is aware that the FRS database may be damaged if power to the drive is lost. If you enable the Write Caching feature and if there are provisions for a power loss (such as an uninterruptible power supply [UPS] attached to the computer, hard disks, or drive controller), the FRS database may not be damaged because FRS does not turn off Write Caching.
