Windows Server 2003 reboot/restart issue
Posted on 2006-06-23
I have an old PC running Windows Server 2003. It is used mainly as a NAT server and Internet gateway for all other PC’s on the network. Lately, it’s been acting up. Specifically, it keeps on rebooting itself every 5 minutes or so. I couldn’t even get to the Event Viewer in time before it restarts again.
When I boot the system into “Safe Mode w/ Networking”, it works fine. I was also able to boot “Using last good known configuration” and it’s been working for hours without rebooting itself. Can I safely assume that the issue has been resolved? I guess I just want to know what you can conclude from this. What is the most likely cause of this particular behavior or pattern? Any advice, suggestion, or explanation will be greatly appreciated.
