Problems with Access DB on Windows Server 2012 R2
Posted on 2014-07-23
At our customers, we have the following problem with Windows Server 2012 R2:
On the Windows 7/8 clients there is installed a VB6 application. This application accesses an Access database, which is located on a file share on the server.
Sporadically, maybe 2-3 times in a month, the VB6 application crashes on the clients, the database will get corrupted and needs to be repaired (duplicate entries in tables, primary keys have been removed.) In the event log, there are no error messages from the Access database. only customers with Windows Server 2012 R2 have this problem, customers with 2008 R2 for example, have no problems.
At Google, i have found that it's possible to downgrade SMB 3.0 to SMB 1.0, but i think it's not the solution because SMB 1.0 was used by Server 2003 and XP clients.
Does anyone have the same issues with Server 2012 R2 and Access, or know how to resolve this problem?
Thanks in advance.
