Servers going offline

Posted on 2009-02-20

Hello, I have a few servers located at the same closet who are going offline once every other day. Because this is happening to more than one server and the fact that eventvwr does not give me an indication as to why this is happening, could this be a switch or power source failure?? Could I have some kind of spyware lurking around??
I have to reboot the servers sometimes by logging into the console because it cannot find the domain anymore. Once it restarts it is ok for a day or two. There are a couple other servers however that are plugged into the same switch and the same power source and are not affected...they stay online just fine.

Any ideas why this could be happening?

    "Servers going offline" means what? What is happening exactly. To see event, set your servers to reboot after failure of system in the system properties --- advanced tab --- under startup and recovery.

    Offline = I cannot even log into the domain because it states "domain name" not available. I cannot ping it by name or IP address. thanks for the event log instructions.

    Are these member servers OR domain controllers? If they are member servers. Unjoin them from domain and then join them again.
