Hi,

Having even more issues with our Exchange 2007 Windows 2008 server. Currently e-mail is working fine although the system attendent process won't start. I can browse the internet from the server but I cannot ping from it (including pings to 127.0.0.1), or connect to it remotely.

I want to see if there is anything I can do to fix it as Microsoft support say they think the TCP-IP stack has become corrupted, and that all I can do to fix this is to is re-install the OS. I haven't tried a new network card as yet, but if it's a stack issue this obviously won't help.

Thanks in advance.

Hi dariusg,

Appreciate the quick response and apologies for my delayed reply. Those fixes look likely to resolve the issue. I will attempt them next week (currently working on some mailbox migrations) and get back to you with the results.

Cheers,

Hi dariusg,

Thanks again for the links. I attempted the Microsoft support link and I can now ping successfully. However for some reason I can't add/remove/see any roles installed on the server. I will be giving the other links a try asap and will then post the results.

Cheers,

Hi dariusg,

I ran the ip reset and rebooted but the old issue then came back. I then tried re-running the winsock reset which unfortunately didn't make a difference as it did last time.

Cheers,

Once you did the reset did you restart the computer?

Hi dariusg,

Sure did, a couple time just to be sure. Then re-ran the winsock reset (as stated above). 24 hours later I re-ran the winsock reset again and I can ping in/out again but still having the other networking issues. Might have to bite the bullet and rebuild.

Cheers,
