Issue: We recently upgraded our core files server from 2003 to 2008 R2. There is a process that renames a file and then seraches the dir withthe with a wildcard and is supposed to find the renamed file and return it back to the calling process.
before the upgrade we would rename the file and then execute the command "cmd /c dir /A-D /B \\[2003fileserver]\Input\abc*.txt" and it would return abc1234.txt
Now it returns 2 values
So i have added Thread.sleep(10000) between the rename and the above command. This seems to have fixed the issue but i am not sure where else this may be an issues since we do renames and deletes all over the place.
does any one know if 2008 indeed hangs on to the original file or deleted file name for a few sec before clearing them out? if yes what can be done?
