Windows 2000 SP2 Causes SCSI Bus Resets During Startup on LSI Logic Controller

The information in this article applies to:
  • Microsoft Windows 2000 SP2 Professional
  • Microsoft Windows 2000 SP2 Server
  • Microsoft Windows 2000 SP2 Advanced Server


When you restart your computer after applying Windows 2000 Service Pack 2 (SP2) on a computer that has an NCR Storage Cabinet (NSC) array attached, the restart process may take as long as one hour to finish.


This behavior occurs because the Disk.sys file does not communicate correctly with some SCSI devices.


A supported fix is now available from Microsoft, but it is only intended to correct the problem described in this article and should be applied only to systems experiencing this specific problem. This fix may receive additional testing at a later time, to further ensure product quality. Therefore, if you are not severely affected by this problem, Microsoft recommends that you wait for the next Windows 2000 service pack that contains this fix.
