CM for 2K3 asks 10 minutes for enabling 1394 device...?!?

It’s seen as Microsoft’s bug inside Configuration Manager (CM) for
Windows 2003 Server version…

Problem reproducing in 2 steps:

  1. Device Manager tries enabling 1394 device (disk) and sleeps down such
    as all (!?!) CM operations are blocked.
  2. CM can’t recognize new PnP device. Even Devcone.exe enable/disable is
    opened in other session for any not 1394(!) devices are waiting for

After 10 minutes (?!?) about CM wakes up and continues well…
The problem only in 10 minutes interval of CM inactivity… :frowning:
CM is seen as single thread and waiting for internal event or critical
section…

Additional Information:

  1. The same device on the same computer, but under Windows XP (dual
    boot) works perfect.
  2. I set up the latest Microsoft Windows Server 2003 R2 Enterprise
    Edition Service Pack 1.
  3. Disk may be attached or “disabled from Device Manager before Step 1”
    with same result.
  4. Appropriate Devcon command line may be used instead of Device Manager
    for 1394 enabling with same result.

Thanks for help,
Regards,
Michael.

Is your 1394 Host adapter by chance 1394b?
I found 1394b support completely broken in wxp/64 (w2k3)
