DFSR stops replication after a dirty shutdown in Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2.

Symptoms:
Consider the following scenario:
  • On a domain server in a Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2 environment, you have a Distributed File System Replication (DFSR) service folder.
  • Many replication activities appear in the folder.
  • The domain server performs a dirty (unexpected) shutdown.
  • NTFS journal wrap occurs after the dirty shutdown.
In this scenario, the DFSR replication of folders stops working after the DFSR garbage collection task is performed.

Cause:
When there is a dirty shutdown, DFSR updates records by restamping and marking records as GC VersionVectorTombstone. Journal wrap also marks the record as not present. The garbage collection task goes into effect, and the database GUID is added as tombstoned GUID. DFSR then marks the database GUID as stale. When a new file is created, it is stamped with the stale database GUID. This causes the record to be filtered out from the version vector because it is a stale database. Therefore, replication does not occur.

Applies to
  • Windows 7 Enterprise
  • Windows 7 Professional
  • Windows 7 Ultimate
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 Datacenter
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 Foundation

Contiguous memory allocation fails with a "STATUS_NO_MEMORY" error in Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2.

Symptoms:

Consider the following scenario:
  • You have a computer that's running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2.
  • You use third-party software to allocate contiguous memory by using the MmAllocateContiguousMemory or MmAllocateContiguousMemorySpecifyCache APIs.
In this scenario, your allocation attempt fails, and a "STATUS_NO_MEMORY" error is generated when the computer is started.

Cause:
This problem occurs because of a problem in the memory allocation algorithm inside the Windows NT kernel. This causes fragmentation in the physical memory, and therefore the contiguous memory allocation process may fail.

Applies to
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 Datacenter
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard
  • Windows 7 Professional

-Article ID: 2996207 - Last Review: October 14, 2014 - Revision: 1.0
Network printers that use TCP/IP port cannot print after first document has printed in Windows.

Symptoms:
Assume that you use a network printer through a TCP/IP port to print documents on a client computer that is running Windows 8.1, Windows RT 8.1, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1), or Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1. In this scenario, when the first print job is finished, any other print jobs cannot be printed.

Cause:
The issue occurs because the client computer does not send a FIN packet to the print server after the first print job is finished. Therefore the print server cannot recognize whether the print job has finished. In this scenario, the print server waits for several minutes, sends a RST packet to the client server, and then cancels the printer job.

Ls command takes a long time to list shared files in two windows on a Windows-based NFS server.

Symptoms:
Consider the following scenario:
  • You have a computer that is running Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (SP1).
  • The computer works as a Network File System (NFS) server.
  • You create and share files on the NFS server.
  • You use a mount command on a NFS client to connect to the NFS server.
  • You open more than one terminal window on the NFS client.
  • You run the following ls command in each terminal window at the same time to list all shared files:
    cd <NFS share>
    ls –lR
In this scenario, it takes longer than expected to list all the shared files from the NFS server.

Cause:
This issue occurs when the NFS client sends a GETATTR call two times in a row. The NFS server has to wait for the ACK packet from the NFS client for the first GETATTR reply packet before it can send the queued second GETATTR reply packet.

Note In most cases, it takes about 0.04 sec to send the second GETATTR reply packet because of delayed ACKs from the NFS client. Therefore, when you execute an ls command, it takes more than two hours to list all files for the attribute information when the total number of files is more than 400,000.
(400,000 * 0.04 sec / 2 Nfs3GetAttr() calls / 3600 sec = 2.22 hours)

You can confirm how long it takes to send the GETATRR reply to the NFS client by monitoring network packets.

Resolution:
To resolve this issue, install hotfix 2957486 on the NFS server.

Note Even though this issue has only been observed in Windows Server 2008 R2, the hotfix also applies to Windows 7.
Applies to
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1, when used with:
    • Windows Server 2008 R2 Datacenter

Network connectivity is lost when many users run applications on a remote server in Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2.

Symptoms:
Consider the following scenario:
  • You have a computer that is running Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1) or Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1.
  • The computer works as a server where more than 50 users run applications by using Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) at the same time.
  • The server is running under unusual heavy processor (CPU) and network load.
In this scenario, the network interface of the server is reset, and all the connected users may lose network connectivity from this remote server unexpectedly.

Cause:
When users run applications on the server, the applications trigger many object identifier (also known as OID) requests to the network miniport driver.

In this case, the Microsoft Network Device Interface Specification (NDIS) driver detects that the network miniport driver does not respond to an object identifier request in two seconds, and then the request times out. In this situation, NDIS resets the network miniport driver. When there are a large number of OID requests issued from the same kernel thread, Windows may detect that the thread is taking up too much CPU time, causing Windows CPU quota enforcement to place the thread on the CPU idle queue. The NDIS driver does not protect the calling thread from being placed on the CPU idle queue, which can cause an OID request to time out.

In severe cases, all users lose TCP network connectivity, and access to their applications is disrupted.

Applies to
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1, when used with:
    • Windows Server 2008 R2 Datacenter
    • Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise
    • Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard

Event ID 55 is logged in Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows may crash.

Symptoms:

When both of the following conditions are met, event ID 55 may be logged.
  • You have a file server that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2.
  • The cluster size (also known as the allocation unit size) for an NTFS volume is larger than 4 kilobytes (KB).
Specifically, the following event is logged in the System log:
Log Name: System
Event Type: Error
Event Source: NTFS
Event ID: 55
Description: The file system structure on disk is corrupt and unusable. Please run the chkdsk utility on the volume "Drive_letter:"
Additionally, because of file system corruption, the server may crash.

Cause:
This issue occurs because the BITMAP attribute of the NTFS metafile cannot roll back when an exception is raised after you modify the metafile. When the system tries to extend the BITMAP attribute, there is no transaction in progress, and the attribute snapshots are purged before the system starts to process the exception. In this situation, file corruption may occur, and NTFS event ID 55 may be logged.

Resolution:
To resolve this issue, we have released hotfixes for Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2.

Note: This hotfix does not fix the existing file system corruption. Therefore, you have to run the Chkdsk command together with the /f or /r parameter after you apply the hotfix.

Disc is ejected unexpectedly when an application is writing to a CD or DVD drive in Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2.

Symptoms:
An application is writing to the disc in a CD or DVD drive on a computer that's running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2. If you press the Eject button on the drive in this situation, the drive should be locked and nothing should happen. Unexpectedly, however, the disk is ejected. This causes data loss on the disc.

Cause:
This problem occurs because of a bug in the IOCTL_STORAGE_MEDIA_REMOVAL control code.

  • Windows 7 Enterprise
  • Windows 7 Professional
  • Windows 7 Ultimate
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 Datacenter

"0x80073B92" error when you perform a Bare Metal Recovery on a Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2-based UEFI computer.

Symptoms:
Consider the following scenario:
  • You have two hard disks installed on a Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) computer that's running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2.
  • You have Windows installed on one of the hard disks.
  • In Disk Management, you configure a redundant array of independent disks (RAID Levels and SQL Server)
    (RAID) level 1, and you mirror the system drive to the hard disk that does not have Windows installed.
  • You install the Windows Server Backup feature.
  • You perform a full backup of Windows.
  • You restart the computer to Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE), and then you perform a Bare Metal Recovery (BMR) operation.
In this scenario, the recovery fails, and you receive the following error message:
Code:
The system image restore failed. 
Error Detail: The requested system device cannot be identified due to multiple indistinguishable devices potentially matching the identification criteria. (0x80073B92)
Cause:
This problem occurs because there are two Extensible Firmware Interface (EFI) system partitions after software mirroring is enabled. During the BMR process, the restore engine tries to create a list of files to be excluded from recovery. To create this list, the restore engine tries to retrieve the system volume name. This function fails because there is more than one EFI system partition. Therefore, the BMR restore engine cannot create the list of files to be excluded, and the recovery operation fails.
