SBS 2008 TDI Driver issue

After much troubleshooting of random lockups on our SBS 2008 r2 PowerEdge T410 server, I have a high degree of certainty that we are experiencing the issue described in this article:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/961775

If this is not the source of the trouble with our server I would at least like to eliminate it as a possible cause. To that end, I requested the appropriate hot fix file from Microsoft and attempted to install it. The article clearly states that the file I requested and received is "For all supported x64-based versions of Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008". However, when it runs it will not install, stating that it "does not apply to" my system.

Has anyone else experienced this specific issue and successfully installed this hot fix on SBS 2008? Did you have to do anything specific to get it to install? Any suggestions on what I might be able to do to get this hot fix installed?

Thanks,
Bill

Trend and TDI ... not a good combination.

Get Windows Server 2008 SP2 on the box to fix it.

Get the newest Trend version.

We were running AVG Business until I removed it to prove or eliminate it as a cause. We're already on SP2, so if SP2 includes the changes in this hot fix, that must be why it wouldn't install. I didn't read anywhere that this hot fix did not apply to SP2.
Thanks,

AVG on SBS 08 is another one we hear a lot about as far as being problematic.

TDI is a legacy part of the TCP stack as I understand it. A/V vendors have had a _long_ time to get their products working with the new networking structures in the Windows OSs.

Hey Westone,

Did removing AVG fix the server lockup issue for you? I am having the same issue and have AVG running on my SBS 2008 server. Let me know...

Thanks!
