Exchange: Event ID 508 "Information Store A request to write took an abnormally long time"


Event ID: 503 Application ESE. Information Store (8260) EX3-SG4: A request to write to the file "P:\EX3-SG4-MB1\EX3-SG4-MB1.edb" at offset 336986112 (0x0000000014160000) for 4096 (0x00001000) bytes succeeded, but took an abnormally long time (66 seconds) to be serviced by the OS. This problem is likely due to faulty hardware. Please contact your hardware vendor for further assistance diagnosing the problem. For more information, click

Cause #1

This is likely due to excessive disk checking on a hard drive.

Resolution: Examine your hardware vendor's Event log to check for excessive disk checking and replace disk according to vendor's specification.

Cause #2

In some instances this is due to eseutil running during backup process to verify integrity of the backup. I've seen this on an Exchange server that was running Veritas to snapshot the Exchange database and this would occur when Veritas would perform eseutil to verify the integity of the database which is a very disk I\O intensive.

Resolution: Run performance baseline to check out disk I\O

For a securing mechanism, Louis provides the users of the louis vuitton with a zipper mechanism. And as befits a true 'luggage' bag, the zipper here ends, on the one side, with a provision for a padlock; so that you can actually secure Show Spring Summer 2009 further with a padlock. For trimmings, Stephen Sprouse Collection has opted to use leather on the Suhali Leather . This is the variety of leather that is referred to as being naturally oxidizing. Such leather, thanks to this natural oxidation mechanism, only gets better with age.
