Server service hangs and is unable to stop on Windows SBS 2003
Posted on 2009-02-16
In our office we are running a Small business server 2003. One of our applications runs from (and keeps it's data in) a shared folder on the SBS-server. We are having a problem that the application suddenly won't start. I have even tried to start the application locally on the server, but the .exe file seems sort of locked. Trying to start it fails (not responding). I have then tried to restart the service called "Server", which handles file sharing. This service fails to stop.
Eventually I just have to restart the server to get it right. This have happened a bit too often lately and it is bothersome to have to restart the server all the time. I hope someone can help me.
