After much troubleshooting of random lockups on our SBS 2008 r2 PowerEdge T410 server, I have a high degree of certainty that we are experiencing the issue described in this article:
If this is not the source of the trouble with our server I would at least like to eliminate it as a possible cause. To that end, I requested the appropriate hot fix file from Microsoft and attempted to install it. The article clearly states that the file I requested and received is "For all supported x64-based versions of Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008". However, when it runs it will not install, stating that it "does not apply to" my system.
Has anyone else experienced this specific issue and successfully installed this hot fix on SBS 2008? Did you have to do anything specific to get it to install? Any suggestions on what I might be able to do to get this hot fix installed?
