While looking through our new Windows 2008 SP2 server event logs, I noticed this unusual error:
||The Virtual Storage Filter Driver is disabled through the registry. It is inactive for all disk drives.
After a little research, I found a knowledgebase article 951007 on Microsoft’s site.
How Microsoft explains this error message is so amusing to me….
If Windows Server 2008 is not running on a Hyper-V Server, this issue will not affect the performance of the operating system. Therefore, you can safely ignore this event.
Basically it’s another Warning message filling my event logs for not using a feature of the product!
