Due to the electric power supply situation at one of our offices abroad (Africa) the server is shut down every evening and switched on again in the morning.
Do you guys have any experience with that? Do frequent reboots, restarts harm the server (I don't talk about hardware, I talk about Windows 2003!), does it increase potential for problems (corrupt file systems, screwed up registry, other "critical" errors, mystical "reconfiguration" etc.).
The question is if it would be better to leave the server on at night or not.
Thanks for any experiences. Could be an interesting discussion :-)
