Possible Hang When Multiple Users Access Data on the Same Dfs Share

Article ID: 256173

Article Last Modified on 2/28/2007



APPLIES TO

  • Microsoft Windows NT Server 4.0, Terminal Server Edition Service Pack 4
  • Microsoft Windows NT Server 4.0, Terminal Server Edition Service Pack 5



This article was previously published under Q256173

SYMPTOMS

When two or more Terminal Server users are running a program that accesses the same data file on the same distributed file system (Dfs) share, Terminal Server may stop responding (hang). This behavior has occurred only with some programs.

CAUSE

Because of a Dfs timing problem, a deadlock can occur in the redirector. Network access can stop while waiting for this deadlock.

STATUS

This problem was first corrected in Windows NT Server version 4.0, Terminal Server Edition Service Pack 6.
