NTFRS timeouts

Hi,

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

Description:
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?

What does DCDiag tell you? Verify that your DNS is set up correctly and serving up your domain.

In Windows Explorer: \\SBSDomain.local\SysVol\SBSDomain.local\Polices

Does it resolve correctly?

In the end it turned out to the be raid card, at least we think it was.

Going on a hunch one of our techs removed a raid card in the server and copied the data to a single disk. This worked, and after a few weeks with no issue we then setup a new raid card and copied the data back.

We havent had any issues since.
