print spooler / buggy server
Posted on 2006-06-07
Today our printing services went out. I stopped and restarted the print services (from a remote desktop).
a. do you have to be at the server itself to do that? whatever was the cause, the server hung up--cold reboot is what I did.
b. our server has been having various little gremlins--router, firewall, etc. our server is only about 5 months old but the IT person who set it up didn't set it up to run any maintenance. i check performance logs, etc.
should i run a scandisk or checkdisk on it, or, even a test to see if the memory is okay? How would I check to see if the memory is actually working properly?
