Last week I posted a message about a problem we were having with getting a Disk 
Full error when trying to save a file.  It turned out to be a problem with 
Mcafee 8.0 and our Veritas backup agent.  Unfortunately, we had to remove both 
programs from the server to fix the problem.  We are still working on trying to 
solve that issue.

This morning we startng getting the messge on our main AD server(W2K).  Here is 
a little history on this server.  Last week we loaded Mcafee 8.0 and it started 
causing the server to reboot after about 5 minutes.  Loaded a patch from Mcafee 
and still had the problem.  Completely removed the virusscan software and 
problem went away.  Last night we installed Directory Replication Services and 
this morning noone could save anything to that server (they got the Disk is 
Full error).  They could not save Excel, Word, or even SolidWorks files.  
Completely removed the DRS and rebooted the server and problem went away.  We 
are at the point of thinking that the Mcafee 8.0 install still has some 
registry entries that might be causing a problem with DRS and are probably just 
going to have to rebuild the server.

Has anyone else encountered any problems like this or have any thoughts as to 
where to begin looking?
