The system cannot find message text for message number 0x1a90 in the message file for NETMSG.
See if your OS gives a different response to a net helpmsg 6800
Is it this?: http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms681389.aspx

6800 codes site:microsoft.com
6800 The function attempted to use a name that is reserved for use by another transaction.
As usual it doesn't seem very informative using just the code to try to
deduce what is wrong. Try searching all files which were changed by the
update for any instances of the code (in both its decimal and hexadecimal
representations.) Assuming you find log files that way (or other diagnostics)
see if the context(s) that you find the code in give you any more clues.
Hmm... note that another poster mentioned this code in an earlier thread
about what seems to be a related code: 80071AA7 http://www.microsoft.com/communities...5-d877db735fb9
E.g. that one seems even more cryptic: <eg>
"The file cannot be opened transactionally, because its identity
depends on the outcome of an unresolved transaction."
