Hi All,
I am in a situation with our exchange server 2003 were it randomly shuts down unexpectedly or so the system event log keeps saying anyway, the event id is 6008, the server is always found the following morning with the keyboard & mouse hung like a monkey, I have googled this and it seems like a very broad range of answers, but none which I think seem to fit, there are a few more details, about 3-4 weeks back there was a contractor who uninstalled & reinstalled IIS on the fly, I know what you might be thinking but he assured me that it was going to be fine, NOT, ever since we have been plagued with issues around exchange & just when I think Im getting close & it starts to settle down, bam it hangs & causes all sorts of issues trying to get it back up and running.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated thanx

Hi Matt
I have come to the same conclusion right from the moment this was done, but would you say that I would have to bite the bullet & do a complete rebuild ?
