Server lockup with unknown cause
Posted on 2006-11-30
I am a student, so I have access to Server 2003 for free and I am teaching myself how to run a server with enterprise services for those of you who would say I am in over my head and to use a differnt OS. The system recently started freezing upon start-up. I've been reading the event viewer, but I can't find anything . As I am novice, I'm not sure if all of my security settings are correct. I haven't installed any new software, all of the software on the server is the server or data files, and when I look at TCPView, I don't see any obvious (to me) bogus connections. Any help as to where to start to find error information would be appreciated.
Oh, and one of the updates never installed. I've tried everything I can think of, but it just won't install it. I can get the number if it's important.
