    The I/O operation has been aborted because of either a thread

    Hiya,

    We are having a problem with a 2008 r2 file server with the error message as above - I have googled and I can only find things to do with IIS with the same error code.

    Anybody seen this or know a fix?

    Just happens to be the file server with both our year 10's and 11's so under pressure to find a fix

    Toby

    It seems to have chopped half the title off or i didnt copy it properly

    Full error is

    The I/O operation has been aborted because of either a thread exit or an application request

    What roles and features are installed on the box?
    Also is it linked to a SAN etc?

    What happens? are clients having this issue or actions actually ran on the server?
    What are your clients?
    Do you use DFS?

    They Are XP clients and no we don't use DFS.

    It only happens in some rooms so i just found out - so i am just going through the machines that i know have the problem and testing - I assume its something client-side rather then server side as other rooms/users are not having problems

    Ahh that narrows it down at least. Do you have firewalls in use on any clients?

    Nope - all disabled by GPO - we had the same problem in the specific classroom when we moved sims to 2008 - the teachers machine wouldn't open the S: drive - we imaged the machine and it still didn't work - swapped it out and the new machine worked - but i don't fancy swapping out a whole classroom because they will not open a connection to 2008 server!

    Have now narrowed it down to a combination of the intel nics in these machines the nortel switch and the 2008 server! plug the same machine into an HP it works fine all connections fine. Very strange that these machines just don't like the 2008 r2 server through this switch but what can you say!

    Are the Intel NICs teamed, teamed connections can be flakey on certain combinations of switch/network cards due to slightly dodgey implementation on the part of either one. This could explain the fix when attached via a different switch.

    nope they are single nics from desktop machines to a nortel switch fibre to the nortel core - through the Host to a Bridged connection to the VM file server. It could be the bridge but considering other vm's are not having this problem which run on the box i am not really sure why its happening - but a fix is good and another nortel switch down just about another 15 more to replace!
