Serious Question

Discussion in 'MCSE' started by Sammy Serious, Jul 14, 2004.

  1. A critical folder on our server has become corrupt to the
    point of not being able to delete it, take ownership or
    assign permissions.

    How can you rid a folder such as this?

    It happens quite often it seems in our environment.

    Thanks in advance,

    No certs to list.

    What version of the OS are you using on the server?

    BTW: Have you tried searching the Knowledge Base?

    Also, what are the specific error messages you are getting when you try
    these operations?

    goto a command prompt and find out what the actual 8.3 name is for it, like
    C:\program~1 by using dir /x . Once you find that out you can access it. if
    you have to use cacls C:\folder /T /P everyone:f .

    Did you try scanning the disk for errors? Fixing the errors might regain
    control of the folder.
    If it does I would recommend replacing the drive before you end up with a
    totally unbootable system.

    Its the standard errors you get when you have a corrupted
    folder that you cannot delete... "directory is not
    empty....access denied..."

    Can't get ACL enumerationwhen trying to add users for
    ownership or NTFS perms.

    Its a cock lock ... help ... :(

    I don't mean to offend you but have you thought about calling in a
    consultant to take a look at your server. I think you would benefit from
    having an expert look over your setup and fixing your issues. Just my .02 so
    don't get pi$$ed off.

    Dude, I am a consultant and I aint pist. This is an
    HP/Compaq SAN system, holds about 1 terabyte of a alrge
    comapny's data. I can't go messing around with scandisk on
    this one, lol.

    time to call HP support. If you are having intermittent issues with the
    reliability of the disks on your EVA/EMA I'd be crapping bricks.
    Regradless of how to ditch this file the problem should not have occurred
    in the first place. There may be some driver updates for the fiber cards
    or firmware updates or the SAN controllers that will be required. We had
    some issues with our cHomPaq EMA SAN when we added a 2k3 cluster onto it
    - different issues but it did relate back to driver/firmware
    incompatibility. Get HP on the phone and find out what's current and what
    matches and you may find that the fix to the underlying issue will
    resolve the 'can't get rid of a file' problem as well...

    my 2¢
