Have a couple of our servers hanging at random, intermittant times.  we think we have nailed it down to BE11d backing up the DFS shares which is causing resourse issues, low memory etc.  event id 8021, 8032,  then some application erros on screen, many sophos errors event 15, storage agents 4609, 3329, 3331, 4099, 4097, 515.  we then have to reboot the server.

    I have backup exec & this happened to two of my servers. We ended up fixing our problem by moving from a hub to a LAN switch. The problem was network congestion with me. I've learned BE loves for the NIC & the switch port setting to be set at 100 full duplex.

    our servers are on a mixture of 100mb or 1g ports on switches

    make sure the server NIC is set at the same duplex & speed as the switch port it is plugged into.
