Windows Server 2003 - System Failure
Posted on 2006-10-24
Windows Server 2003- Standard Edition with all current updates
Dell PowerEdge 2850 Server
Here is the problem:
Server boots up, but when I attempt to login it displays the Shutdown Event Tracker, System Failure: Stop Error and in the comment field is:
0x0000008e (0xc0000005, 0x808bc64d, 0xb9953914, 0x000000000)
Then I get the blue screen and it does the physical memory dumps and reboots...
I am attempting to log in through the console but I have also attempted through Remote Desktops with the same results. Here is what else I have attempted:
- Login to the domain
- Login to the computer itself
- Tried the last known good configuration
All with the same results... Server reboots
The interesting piece is that if I leave the server up and running at the login screen, everyone can access all the shares, all the SQL DB's.... Just can't login in to the desktop...
I can get in through safe mode and have checked event viewer and the only thing that stood out is the load balancing service that failed to start.
This is our main File server and SQL server so this is extremely urgent, all help is appreciated... Right now the Server is up but I am not sure how stable it is...
