Directory listing fails when sharing violations occur on Windows Server 2012 R2 or Windows Server 2012-based NFS server

This article describes an issue that occurs on a Windows Server 2012 R2 or Windows Server 2012-based Network File System (NFS) file server. A hotfix is available to fix this issue. The hotfix has a prerequisite.
Symptoms
Assume that you have NFS clients (Windows or UNIX) that access the NFS file server. In this situation, when you have many clients (local or remote applications, such as Server Message Block (SMB) and FTP) access this share, sharing violations occur on the server side intermittently. It causes a brief outage of certain operations such as directory listing which can cause third-party applications to fail.

Windows Server 2012 R2

Important Windows 8.1 hotfixes and Windows Server 2012 R2 hotfixes are included in the same packages. However, hotfixes on the Hotfix Request page are listed under both operating systems. To request the hotfix package that applies to one or both operating systems, select the hotfix that is listed under "Windows 8.1/Windows Server 2012 R2" on the page. Always refer to the "Applies To" section in articles to determine the actual operating system that each hotfix applies to.

Notes
  • The files that apply to a specific product, milestone (RTM, SPn), and service branch (LDR, GDR) can be identified by examining the file version numbers as shown in the following table:
    VersionProductMilestoneService branch
    6.3.960 0.18 xxxWindows Server 2012 R2RTMGDR
  • GDR service branches contain only those fixes that are widely released to address widespread, critical issues. LDR service branches contain hotfixes in addition to widely released fixes.
  • The MANIFEST files (.manifest) and the MUM files (.mum) that are installed for each environment are listed in the "Additional file information" section. MUM, MANIFEST, and the associated security catalog (.cat) files, are very important to maintain the state of the updated components. The security catalog files, for which the attributes are not listed, are signed with a Microsoft digital signature.
