Event ID: 158 is logged for identical disk GUIDs
Log Name: System
Date: <Date> <Time>
Event ID: 158
Task Category: None
Disk # has the same disk identifiers as one or more disks connected to the system. Go to Microsoft's support website (http://support.microsoft.com) and search for KB2983588 to resolve the issue.
Note: The above event message has no functionality or performance impact on the client systems. This event provides a warning that multiple disks on the system shared the same identification information (like serial number, page 83 IDs etc.)
- If multiple paths to the same physical disk device are available, but Microsoft Multipath I/O (MPIO) is not enabled, the device is exposed to the system by all paths that are available. This causes the same device ID data (such as Device Serial Number, Vendor ID, Product ID, and so on) to be exposed multiple times.
- If Virtual Hard Disks (VHD) are duplicated by using a copy-and-paste operation to create additional virtual machines (VMs), none of the internal data structures are changed. Therefore, the VMs have the same disk GUIDs and the same ID information (such as Device Serial Number, Vendor ID, Product ID, and so on).
