Default What do blocked worker threads really mean?

Please Login to Remove!

I've been fighting blocked worker threads for a while now. We're running exchange 2003 in a clustered environment with a shared stoage back end. Running BES 4.1.5 (recently upgraded). External sql 2000 database. BES and Exchange are in the same rack - latency not an issue. I estimate about 1000 mail boxes, of those 300 BES users.

We constantly get the worker threads have been blocked for x checks multiple times and then the BES automatically restarts the agents after it finally gives up - sometimes up to 6 times. This causes huge delays in mail processing/delivery.

Can anyone give me some insight? T support has been less than stellar on this issue.
