Symptoms

Consider the following scenario:

  • You connect a Windows Server 2008-based computer to a storage device that is controlled by Microsoft Multipath I/O (MPIO).

  • The MPIO-controlled storage device contains paging files.

  • An MPIO path fails over to another path and is then restored

  • You try to shut down or restart the computer.

In this scenario, you receive the following Stop error message during the shutdown process:

Stop: 0x0000009F (0x00000003, parameter2, parameter3, parameter4)
DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE

Note The parameters in this Stop error message vary, depending on the computer's configuration.

Cause

After an MPIO path fails over and is restored, the DO_POWER_PAGABLE flag in the original path's device object is not cleared as expected. This flag causes the disk in the original path to be prematurely put into low-power mode during system shutdown. Therefore, when the system tries to perform page-swapping operations during system shutdown, these operations fail because the disk device object that holds the paging files is no longer responsive.

Resolution
