Server does not like large files.
Right, this question has been bugging me for a while.
We've got a 4 year old server that's running 2003 and is fitted with 3GB of memory. It has 2 SATA HD's (not RAID) and is networked with a 1Gb link.
From my machine if I copy a large file say 2GB, to one of the server drives, it copies ok but if I copy the same file to the other server drive the progress bar moves very quickly at first then stops with the server HD light lit solid. It will stay like this for a few minutes with the server unresponsive then my machine will report an error and the server will come back to life.
For information the server swap file set at 4977 MB and is on the second drive.
