SRV Event ID 2012

Hello,

We have a Windows Server 2008 R2 VS running as our file server on an ESX 5.1 box.

Over the last week, we've started to experience a flood of  "Event 2012, SRV" errors. When this happens, users cannot access files and some programs crash, ESPECIALLY on our Remote Desktop Services server. After about 20 minutes of waiting, or if we reboot the server, the flood stops and we are able to work as normal.

We are using Vipre antivirus and it's a very basic data network. Not sure if it's an issue with the ESX box or Server 2008 R2 but we could use some help getting to the bottom of this!

Our network configuration isn't that complex and looks to be correct. We are not segregating VLANs so the ESX hosts are on the same subnet. We have all the servers on the same Virtual Switch.

Any ideas or suggestions?

Dear friend,

please go and read Microsoft KB 2885205 , ITS NOT BECAUSE OF Esx but server related .
please check if you have event i.d 2020 or 2019 or 333 in the system logs.
check your Virtual memory,of the Server. May be you need yo allocate some,more amount

We found that we had to disable TCP offloading on the NICs of both virtual machines.
