Random Exchange Store Outage

Double Take
Exchange Storage Group
Microsoft Exchange 2003
Storage Groups
Setup: Exchange 2003 SP2 running on Windows Server 2003 R2 SP2. 4 Storage Groups - (2 have 2 stores and 2 have 1 store each) on a SAN. Doubletake replicates the stores to an onsite backup server and the SAN replicates the stores offsite. Running Antigen 9.2 SP2. Each storage group has its own database drive and each has its own log drive.

 Problem Description: Randomly one of the Storage Group's stores will go down because a log file cannot be accessed for read/write. (Program log error message included below.) It is not frequent, but say 8 times over the last 4 months. It happens during working hours when the server is being utilized the most. The stores mount fine after the incident. It has happened on each of the Storage Groups but never more than one Storage Group at a time. Has anyone seen anything similar to this? Any help or suggestions appreciated.
