win 2000 Server and XP Pro clients

By rodwambold ·
The server is an IBM 8668 42x ? 232 x series.

Saving to the servers RAID Array is sluggish and
at times we are not allowed to delete or save
files or folders on the server from a client
machine. After opening and editing a file when
saving/closing an error message appears stating
that the file can not be saved because another
program is using it.

These problems started after client machines were
upgraded from Windows 2000 to XP PRO.

Current Server RAID Manager Version is 4.70.17.
Controller Type = ServerRaid-4Mx BIOS, Firmware
and Driver Ver. = 4.84.01

The Server also has an EXAByte tape backup on it.
It uses ARCserver 2000 addition. Version 7.0 [
Build 1086]

The question that I have is there a know issue
with XP Pro clients writing to Win 2000 server or
is it more likely the Raid Array where the
problem is. Maybe updating the Bios device
drivers.

Your input is greatly appreciated.


Thank you!

Are you running XP Pro SP1? There is a known issue with SMB between XP Pro SP1 and Windows 2000.

See if these links help.

Thanks for your input. I have resolved the issues and even avoided a few future items.

Sorry about not responding sooner. I have been on the road lately.

Thanks again!
