    Same problem here. It started today.

    Windows Server 2012 R2 virtual machine running on a Server 2012 cluster. We didn't see the problem with 2012, only started since we upgraded to 2012 R2 last week


    * Those of you having problems do you host roaming profiles on the same server or volumes?

    * What OS are you running on the clients Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows 7?

    * does anyone have any active Microsoft PSS cases about this? If so can you post your case numbers.. I'm going to open a case, it might be helpful to link them.

    I now have a PSS case open for this. Case number is 114022411211053

    * I can reliably recreate the problem by configuring a Windows 8.1 machine to load a roaming profile from a Windows Server 2012 R2 Server. It only causes the problem at logon and not logoff.

    * I have noticed that in Task Manager | Performance the disk active time shows 100%, both read and write speed show 0KB/s and active time show 0% while the problem is occurring (Disk counters will need to be enabled to see this: Diskperf -Y). Can anyone else see this happening?

    * These error messages are logged in the SMB Server log:

    File system operation has taken longer than expected.

    Client Name: \\[2001:630::98ac:3997:6e7a]
    Client Address: [2001:630::98ac:3997:6e7a]:49220
    User Name: DOMAIN\USER
    Session ID: 0x480004000719
    Share Name: \\*\Students
    File Name: USER\Photography
    Command: 14
    Duration (in milliseconds): 39533
    Warning Threshold (in milliseconds): 15000

    Guidance:

    The underlying file system has taken too long to respond to an operation. This typically indicates a problem with the storage and not SMB.

    Glad someone has raised a ticket. Thanks for sharing.

    Just out of interest have you got the latest version of the components listed here http://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2899011 installed?

    Obviously, don't go changing anything now without PSS telling you too! But others might benefit from trying the above.

    The latest from our end (remember I'm not privy to all the technical details):-

    1 - we start the first day of a new half term with plans to restart the server service every once in a while
    2 - our external support has escalated this to MS and following some memory dumps MS are now paying attention
    3 - somebody (perhaps MS) remotes into our server and "removes" some of the software - I would love to know exactly what this means too!
    4 - since then there have been no further instances of the problem
    5 - the latest suspect is VEEAM

    So, we are pootling along and as a user I am not experiencing any of the issues we've had for the past few weeks.

    I don't think this is the end of the matter, and if I can find out what "software was removed" I'll repost.

    If this issue is hardware related just to check...
    We are using HP Proliant DL 380 G4 and G5.

    There does not appear to be a single common denominator other than Server 2012. We saw this prior to R2, and I know that R2 hasn't improved the situation elsewhere. What I also know is that rolling back to Server 2008R2 sees the problem go away. If it is in any way hardware related, then it would appear to be how Server 2012 reacts to that hardware as opposed to the hardware itself...ball back in Microsoft's court I think.

    So does restarting the server service do the trick?

    What clients does everyone have accessing the servers - Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1?

    It did for us, on a temporary basis.

    So are some of you saying if you had 2012 or 2012 R2 with Windows 7 clients the problem isn't there, but when running 2012 or 2012 R2 with Windows 8 or 8.1 clients the problem's there?

    Again this would point to the SMB versions for sure. And presumably if you're running 2008 R2, but using Windows 8 or 8.1 with RSAT the problem isn't there?

    For us the problem only appears to occur when Windows 8.1 machines access our 2012 R2 file servers. We set group policy to stop our Windows 8.1 clients from loading roaming profiles and this seemed to fix the problem - 700 ish Windows 7 machines were still loading roaming profiles quite happily.

    Until last night I could recreate the problem simply and reliably by getting a couple of Windows 8.1 machines to load a roaming profile from the server - as soon as they tried logging in the file server would stop responding to requests.

    This morning I couldn't reproduce the problem at all, so we allowed 150 ish Windows 8.1 computer to load profiles. All was fine until 12:30 when we allowed another 60 or so Windows 8.1 computers to load profiles and within 5 mins the server had died again.

    So it looks like Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 clients are provisionally the problem

    Be interesting to get feedback from others.
