The problem is this: every Sunday, between 7:00 AM and 7:07 AM just over
18,000 files are generated at the root of the SYS volume on one of our
remote servers. The files are all exactly 36 bytes, and have what I assume
are randomly generated names like QSAHP52K.DV0 or 9G6715AS.DPO. If I do
nothing the number stays the same - ie the next Sunday another 18,000 files
are not generated.

I posted this problem a while ago and was advised to update the server to
the latest service pack. I have done that.

The problem occurs only on this one server, and all our servers are
essentially identical.


NW v6.5 Support Pack 5 - CPR Release
Support Pack Revision 05
Server Version 5.70.05 April 11, 2006
eDirectory version SMP
NDS version 1005279

It is also running the latest SERVER.EXE.

There is nothing I can think of that runs at that time every Sunday and no
other time. We perform a full backup with Backup Express on Sundays, but
that occurs at 1:00 AM on the Sunday.

Has anyone else ever experienced this? My main concern is it is very slow
to attach to the server. Simply trying to open SYS takes a minimum of 5
minutes if not more.
