SBS 2003 R2, Prolian ML 350 2x72 GB System 2x 146GB Data (Exchange is there) HW RAID e200i.
The server where freezed and I was forced to do power cycle. The boot up hanged to Applying Computer Settings (waited 1,5 hrs to see if she would carry on) I was able to start this server in Safe Mode.I disabled all Exchange services and rebooted it. I come up nicely. Then I enabled all related exchange services and started the Information Store and the server freeze. I-ll tried to open taskmanager but nothing happened. I was forced to do cold reboot.
The server boots up only if Exchange services are disabled. CHKDSK doesn't find anything special as far as I know.
Any idea how to carry on? I saw from the logs that originally the freeze situation started last night when NT backup (information store) started (before that NT BU on drive c and e run succesfully). Same freeze problem has happened lastly one week ago and four months ago).
Any ideas how to carry on? Server Management says that all last 8 backups vere completed succesfully (two most old ones had problems).
Thanks in advantage,
