Having a problem with Windows 2000 Server re-booting. We have Veritas 8.6 loaded on there and an Adaptec SCSI card that serves up a Autoloading tape drive. When we run a backup, the server will reboot sometimes 18 mins in to it, sometimes 22min into it, and so on. I thought that it may be a file causing it, but it halts on different files. The only other thing this server does is share files and host a small exchange database (email) on it. The event viewer is no help in trying to figure out what the problem is; it just states that the server re-booted suddenly/unexpected and lists hex or DWORD values....anywone know how to read that junk! lol
Anyway, I'm at a dead end. I've updated the Win2K Server with all patches, veritas, and the tape device. I have no where else to turn....I've also run the Dell Diag. on the server several times with no errors to report.....aggghhhh! Plez help!!!
