[OpenAFS] can't obtain PAGs on Windows Server 2008R2
Fri, 25 Jan 2013 11:56:28 -0600
One of our Server 2008R2 systems is reporting a lot of errors like this
Event 1008, AFS Logon: AFSCreatePAG Failed IOCTL_AFS_AUTHGROUP_SID_QUERY
Not a big deal when logging in as administrator and getting a desktop,
but we suspect we're seeing problems when our VMware VM backups fire off
on this host and create unattended sessions for individual VM backups.
Stopping the TransarcAFSDaemon service while backups are running seems
to improve the reliability of the backup process.
The administrator user exists in domain AD (ad.cs.wisc.edu). We do use
integrated logon, but it is disabled on a per-domain basis for domains
LOCALHOST and AD in our case with
= 0x0 registry keys set to disable integrated logon for users in those
Is the above AFSCreatePAG error a critical error, and is there a way to
tweak the system settings to eliminate such errors?
