server Windows 2008 enterprise R2 - write cache issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have procured a Hardware HP Server DL380 Gen9 from M/s. Mushko Electronics along with OS (Windows 2008 Ent. R2). During the installation of software we need to enable "write back cache" feature for which hardware doesn’t support. According to hardware vendor the feature of write back cache is already enabled at hardware level and there is no need to activate the write back cache feature once it is enable from back end. Despite querying the issue with HPE, the HPE support also advised to contact the OS Microsoft regarding enabling write cache on software.

    Now, the Microsoft is requested look into the matter and resolve our query as the application needed to enabled write cache feature for smooth functioning.

    Waiting for your early response and solution.

  • Hi,
    Just a reminder: enabling disk write caching may result in the loss of information if a power failure, equipment failure, or software failure occurs.
    Please take a look article as below:
