Windows 2003 server shares become unresponsive
Posted on 2008-10-20
We have a Windows 2003 Server where the shares become unresponsive.
System is an IBM3550 3Ghz Duo, 4 GB RAM. Serving 20 Terminal users, not running any backup application, Running Node32 antivirus.
Server becomes inaccessible for any share resources. Whe trying to open server from the network it errors out with message: you do not have permissions, network name doesn't exist.
We receive the same result by accessing over IP address.
Although the shares are not working the terminal access is working and server utilization is minimal (2-5% CPU and 1700-2000 MB of RAM). Only restart can bring server to the normal operation. We have one more server - SBS 2003 running 2003 exchange, BackupExec 12, Node32 Antivirus, this server is functional so far. No issues with the shares
Any input on this problem would be greatly appreciated
