When you are establishing a network connection to a system area network (SAN) by using a connection that is defined in Network Connections Manager, you may receive the following error message:
Fatal System Error: 0x0000000a (0x00000050,0x00000002,0x00000001,0x8006542A)


This behavior can occur when an access violation in the Msafd.dll file occurs. Upon completion of network connection, Msafd.dll does not set the Shared Socket Context. When a different process tries to import the socket, Windows 2000 does not identify that connection as over a SAN. The process proceeds as if connection is over TCP/IP, and this eventually leads to the access violation. This can happen when duplication of a socket is on the connecting side.


To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Windows 2000. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
