For no reason at all I started getting these error messages last week:
Description="File system error: The background thread running lazy writer encountered an I/O error. Physical file: \\?\D:\SQL Server Data\Analysis Database\DB.0.db\Visitor View.23.dim\45.Visitor Key.astore. Logical file: ." Source="Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Analysis Services" HelpFile="" /><Error ErrorCode="3238133764" Description="File system error: The following error occurred while writing to the file 'LazyWriter Stream': There is not enough space on the disk. ." Source="Microsoft SQL Server ... The step failed.
It started happening on both of my database cubes. And it happens for different tables on both. Nothing has changed and there doesn't appear to be a good reason for it. Every once in a while I will get a message that the table astore file is corrupted. I am running MSSQL 2008, so I'm guessing all of the 2005 hot fixes are pointless.
I have over 200gigs of free space on this drive, and I don't see any astore file that is over 500megs so I don't think the 4GB limit is an issue.
I can reprocess the measures or any dimension on its own and it works fine. But doing the entire cube fails. Please help
