Problem with Storage Server 2003 file access from network workstations
Posted on 2009-04-19
We are experiencing a bizarre problem (constant and random) when accessing Storage server (Windows Storage server 2003 R2) from networked workstations. For some reason occasionally when I am trying to access the server its hang-up, but the server is running fine (if you check the server) and its shows no errors, nothing in the event viewer, no indication of a problem, and I can access that same folder or file on the server itself with no lockup. This problem only occurs on the 64 bit server, I have two other 32 bit 2k3 servers on my domain and have never had a similar issue with either. The only way to clear the workstation lockup is to reboot the 64 bit storage server. Once that is done that they can access that file or folder normally, they don't have to reboot or even log off the workstation. This problem does not seem to be user, workstation, file type, folder, day, or time specific. The only commonality is the 64 bit server. With 30+ users having to back out of their work so I can reboot the server every time one of them locks up, this is becoming a major issue. Anybody else have a problem like this ? HELP !!!
