On one of the three server pairs in question, yes the hotfixes don't match (2282+2187, and I am awaiting clearance to patch)...and of the four times we have had this problem, the mismatched shippee was the host TWICE.


apparently it was fixed in sp4 which is 2039 - on the link i sent there is also a workaround - on the secondary (shepee) set maxdop to 1 in the server settings and see if it fixes the problem.....

yes i know it's a fudge, but it's the microsoft issue fudge - worth a try before you go ripping disks out

SQLIOSIM is the tool to use to validate that an IO subsystem will properly handle SQL Server IO-style workloads.


But SQL needs to be stopped when running that. The aim is to validate the IO subsystem, nor slaughter it.


I thought he/she said they wanted to know if the IO subsystem had problems with SQL Server data that was causing problems. SQLIOSIM is a/the way to validate that.

Sure, but they can't stop SQL Server without justification (proof of IO problems). Vicious circle.
