Diskpart hangs on a server when you try to run it

I have a server that is running 2008 Ent R2 SP1 and we have a issue where if you open a command prompt and run diskpart it will act like it is running buh then hang befor you get the "DISKPART" prompt.

After a reboot it works fine. It seems like there is something causing a memory leak or some sort of conflict in the system with Diskpart.

Server is fully patched. Any ideas what would cause this or what I can look for when it is hanging that will help determine where the issue is?

This might have to do with incorrect controller selection or inappropriate driver with the disk and/or any issues with the disk itself. Please do a check on that.

In addition, I recommend you use checkntfs.exe to perform a disk error check and make sure Plug and Play is also running with RPC and Virtual Disk.

Thanks,

For the possible problem with the incorrect controller selection how would I check to see if that is a issue? These are HP DL servers.
