Had someone report that a Windows 2003 server crashes about every 1 to 2 weeks. I went on and found the following event in the System Event Log:
Event Type: Error
Event Source: symmpi
Event Category: None
Event ID: 9
Time: 8:04:05 AM
The device, DeviceScsisymmpi1, did not respond within the timeout period.
Found that this was a virtual machine running on another Windows 2003 server as the host. Using VMware 2.0.
Researched and found the following registry key helpful in this environment since saving to the virtual disk can sometimes require a longer timeout value.
After a restart, this event has not reoccurred in 2 weeks. No crashes either.
