we have a windows 2003 server SP1 running exchange. It is an IBM x236 server. We have tried to run the IBM diagnostics but can not view the output file because it is corrupted. I am looking for any suggestions to try to get to the root of what is going on with this server. we will be taking the server offline to run the diag via a bootable CD but not until next week. In the meantime, does anyone have a suggestion for getting to the bottom of the problem.
A chkdsk was run on the server with no arguements. Windows decided to fix the security descriptors on several files and propogate them to the mirrored drive. I think there is more going on here that just a hardware issue. Now i think there is file corruption as well. We have backups, but i am not confident that they are any good either.
