We are getting the following error from an SBS 2003 server. This has started happening in the last few weeks seemingly out of the blue. No changes have been made to the setup to cause this that we can see.
Event Type: Error
Event Source: Service Control Manager
Event Category: None
Event ID: 7011
Timeout (30000 milliseconds) waiting for a transaction response from the NtFrs service.
We have tried increasing NTFRS timeout value via the registry. This has helped alot. It was happening around once every 30 mins or so, where-as it's now happening once every 4 or 5 hours, but that's still worrying.
When this happens the server appears to freeze for a bit, with all connections stopping, then it carrys on.
We have run a full chkdsk /f of the disks, but nothing appears to be up there. There arent any other disk related errors in the event log at all.
Any suggestions how we move forward?
