-I have just brought down an old mail server called mail2 that no longer was running exchange server. It was demoted to a AD Member and I made sure it was no longer any sort of FISMO server. From there I brought down that server for and reinstalled WIN2k Server for another task on my network.
-Mail3 was receiving and distributing email fine until it froze up at 12:30am the next morning. Here is a system error at about the same time:
Event ID: 1003
Source: System Error
Error code 0000000a, parameter1 5043c744, parameter2 00000002, parameter3 00000001, parameter4 80a79133.
After the freeze, I ran Microsoft's Exchange Server Best Practices Analyzer and fixed the following errors:
-Problems with Mail2 still being Master in Routing Group
-So I turned Mail3 into the master of the group.
After deleting Mail2 from the Exchange Administrative Groups I received the following errors:
-There wasn't a Offline Address Book Server
- So I made Mail3 a Offline Address Book Server.
-Problems with Offline Address Book Server Duplication
-So I made Mail3 Duplicate that Offline Address List.
At about 10:00am I got a memory dump error (Blue Screen of Death). Here is a blurry picture I took with my cellphone just to give you the idea.
It again froze at 12:30am the next day, I decided to see what happens if I didn't manually reboot it and it was again online the next morning. I couldn't find a error event id for that time.
I am now running chkdsk /r to check the server's hd. And I will run memtest once that is finished.
Is there any way that a service (exchange or otherwise)provided by Mail2 which is no longer available may be a factor in causing these errors on Mail3. If so, what else should I use to further troubleshoot this problem? Or if not, what other direction should I go to try and solve this problem.
Sorry for the long question, I would rather give too much information then not enough!
THANK YOU AS ALLWAYS!
