There are no H710 drivers for 2003, as the H710 was designed for 12th generation servers, and Dell does not support 2003 on any of their 12G servers. Your best option would be to run 2003 as a virtual machine rather than directly on the hardware. You could, however, try the following: H700 driver for 2003 (hard drive version, extract first): H710 driver for XP (from Precision workstation): H710 LSI equivalent controller (from lsi.com): Also, remember, that the H700 does NOT support non-RAID, so before the OS can see ANY drive to install to, RAID must first be configured in the CTRL-R utility for the H710.

EE, I have a Dell Tower Windows Server 2012 installation for a client. Our first production venture into WS 2012. It is the only server on site.
It is a PDC, DNS, DHCP, File and Application Server. RAID 5 across 4 500GB HDs. Has one 300 GB OS partition and the rest a separate partition for files storage. Users connect back to it as store for Quickbooks company files. The QB Database Manager is running on it. All QB updates, patches and revisions have been applied. It is backed up by Appassure to a NAS and is the core server.
Otherwise the users (15) access it for obvious Directory Services and a file store from time to time. User profiles are local to their workstations. THE ISSUE: The server will freeze roughly every 30 minutes. It becomes unresponsive to local access and the end user workstations (not all, everytime >but most of them, most of the time) will go 'Not Responding' in most apps they are working with.Quickbooks in particular. We disabled appassure as it was on a 30 minute schedule, but no help. Vendor blamed it on the RAID card so we upgraded the RAID card from a PERC H310 (no cache) to an H710 (500MB cache).
Updated BIOS and Chipset firmware. Applied all MS updates.
Manually set the page file to minimum 42GB max 52GB. *Oddly with the page file managed automatically by Windows it would never create a page file larger than 4.5 GB. Also, noticed in event viewer, the DFSR and DFS Namespace services would fail on a regular basis. No clue why either of these services were running.
The DFS role is not installed and there are no other servers on the network to replicate to. I disabled the services with no obvious repercussions, although it did not stop the issue we are having. We swapped the card this weekend and I put it back in place yesterday.
I remoted into the box via RDP within a few hours and it is happening still. Any thoughts or help is appreciated.
Ok so its a brand new server and a brand new server 2012 installation. Then most likely something is intermittently failing in the server such as hardware. Or the antivirus your using on the server is causing it freeze up. Ive seen servers crash all the time because of AV software and then we uninstall it and it works flawlessly what AV and version are you using? Has it been proven to work with 2012 since its so new. On 2012 your better off with no AV and putting the server in Core mode and then manageing the server from a workstation with RSAT tools.
UPDATE: No option for core. Not compatable with several applications. Server did well for a couple of days, then freezing again. Started small. Short freeze only a couple times in the day.
Download Uc Browser Untuk Nokia E63. Has been growing though. More freeze events for longer durations. Is happening in direct conjunction with the following event viewer notification entries: svchost (3988) A request to write to the file 'C: Windows system32 LogFi les Sum Sv c.log' at offset 2392064 (0x248000) for 4096 (0x00001000) bytes has not completed for 36 second(s).
This problem is likely due to faulty hardware. Please contact your hardware vendor for further assistance diagnosing the problem. Immediately followed by (30 to 40 secs): svchost (3988) A request to write to the file 'C: Windows system32 LogFi les Sum Sv c.log' at offset 2392064 (0x248000) for 4096 (0x00001000) bytes succeeded, but took an abnormally long time (60 seconds) to be serviced by the OS.
In addition, 0 other I/O requests to this file have also taken an abnormally long time to be serviced since the last message regarding this problem was posted 3600 seconds ago. This problem is likely due to faulty hardware. Please contact your hardware vendor for further assistance diagnosing the problem. These events happen at the exact same time of the hour, each hour no matter whether a freeze or not. There are no scheduled tasks running on this machine at all that I can identify. Dell has looked the box over, openmanage shows green accross the board, no errors anywhere else.no trace of a hardware problem any where.
Hello Anyone had any luck with this? I'm having pretty much the same issue, in a similar environment too (an old SBS 2003 decommissioned and a new Dell PowerEdge T320 was installed with 2012 running a 2012 Hyper-V). 1997 Coleman Laredo Pop Up Camper Specs. Users report losing connection to the shares and their 'PC freezing/thinking for a bit' every now & then.
Our RMM software also records the server offline and creates a ticket. It doesn't occur as regularly as it does for ssiremote, but matching the times of the users reporting 'hangs' + the RMM offline server tickets + the 'svchost (3988) A request to write to the file 'C: Windows system32 LogFi les Sum Sv c.log' ' events as ssiremote mentioned happening, it all looks related. I'm yet to do any hardware driver updates etc, but was just looking around for any info & found this thread. I think we figured out the culprit, but not necessarily the reason a couple of days ago. So far, so good anyway. The User Access Logging service was hammering away at writing data to the Svc.log.
Odd since there are only 15 users on the domain. We scanned all machines for a bug which may be constantly polling, but all good on that end.
We disabled the service and so far no freeze issues. The service is mostly for auditing so it is not critical on this environment. We have sent several different logs to Microsoft (per their request) for their developers to anaylze and let us know what the actual cause might be. Still waiting on those results.
