Have a server that has just started to play up really badly.
Its a Microsoft SBS 2003 system, service pack 2.
Have moved the disks to new hardware (same everything) and it is still having the same issues.
Basically alot of the services are failing to start automatically, with "server" and anything dependant on it such as "computer browser" being the most problematic.
Most of the time (90%) I can manually start the service, and I can browse local shares (\\server) for several minutes before the service stops itself. Sometimes it stops straight away, sometimes I get a error "access denied" when starting it, and finally, it sometime starts, but although it's status is "started" I still cannot view shares.
At the same time i'm getting a popup saying generic host for windows needs to be closed. Click ok to that and it reappears straight away.
Event log has no errors that relate to anything it seems. Generic host isnt logging anything as it crashes, nor is "server" service. There were alot of Winmngt errors in the log, however I rebuilt the WMI, and they seem to have gone away, however the original issue still exists.
I have disabled backupexec 9.1 completely, removed symantec AV, disable all blackberry services, deselected everything on startup from MSCONFIG. Still no change.
I have also added "NOPAE" to the boot.ini as suggested in a similar problem thread on here (lost the link just at the moment).
