Windows 2000 server: (SP4)
After a new installation of Backup Exec, several tasks of Windows 2000 server hangs. Even when trying to uninstall Backup Exec, the process hangs.
"Install server not responding"
With the initial installation, the installer could not read / find a specific file on the disk and the supplier issued another disk. We did the installation a second time, and now we are experiencing hanging problems with several tasks.
Even Outlook Express stalled, and after several retries, the application opened, but was unable to contact the Exchange system via IMAP. Running netstat indicated that port 110 and 143 were not listening.
We are trying to uninstall Backup Exec, and start again, but the uninstall process stalled everytime - was unsuccesfull.
Does this point to the Windows installer files being corrupted?
Where should we start troubleshooting these errors?
