Delayed Write Failed. RRS feed

  • Question

  • why do I keep getting these messages in the event log? I am running WHS and every 10 days or so the backup utility will stop running and I find these messages in my log. What is going on? If I schedule chkdsk /r to run on the next bootup is finds bad indexes and fixes them and it's ok again for about 10 days.

    Here is the event log messag.

    It sounds to me like you have a bad hard drive (or a bad data cable).  You should replace it ASAP.

  • Hello
    I am running WHS on a HP ML115 server with (4) 1.5tb seagate drives with raid turned off. I am getting delayed write failed errors as well. It seems to only happen when I try to copy files larger than 200mb either over NIC or thru a USB drive. The event log shows a nvgts1 timeout error followed by the delayed write failed. I have replaced all the sata cables, and ethernet cables. Uninstalled and reinstalled the Nvidia Nforce driver. Turned off write cache to all the drives. Everything hardware wise is brand new. Even new netgear gig switches. Dont know what else to do. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. 

    Thanks

    If you haven't already, I would suggest checking for a BIOS update for the server.

    The latest is: 2009.04.20 (A) (17 Jun 2009) or 2009.04.20 17 Jun 2009

    There are also additional FW upgrades listed on this page. I would verify that they've all been updated.
    Firmware and BIOS for HP SAS/SATA HBA with RAID
    Firmware Flash Utility for the HP Smart Array E200 and E200i Controllers  (multi-part download)
    HP NC-Series Broadcom Online Firmware Upgrade Utility for Windows Server 2003/2008

    Thanks

  • Have done a BIOS update with the same results. I have seen some other posts where people were having problems with the Nvidia Nforce controller on the ML115s. Tried putting in a new sata controller but the system just blue screens so I returned it. I have also done a wipe and new install but it keeps happening.

  • I have experienced a swarm of parity errors on a data drive recently so I decided to check out the drive and possibly replace it. It is an advanced format (4k sector) 1.5 TB WD EARS disk and it was put in without jumper. Had no idea this might be an issue. The parity error just might be for that reason, I don't know. Thought I should take it out, fit it with a jumper and put it back in to see.

    All folders are duplicated.

    I started removing the drive 24 hrs ago and it is about 60% through and I keep getting the error message above. The error message does not refer to the drive being removed, I recon, but one or more of the target drives?

    Now what? I keep losing data, but will that be taken care of by DE migrator? Will it discover that blocks of data are gone or just complete files?

    Should I kill the process (what's the name?) and just take out the drive, or should I let the process finish?
