I have a small server farm with two (2) servers: a MOSS Enterprise Edition server and a MS SQL 2005 Standard Edition server, both running Windows Server 2003 Enterprise Edition.
I am in urgent need for help due to the following issue on my production MOSS 2007 database server. Today, I tried to log into my database server which holds the database of our MOSS 2007 Enterprise Edition installation. The server started showing some messages that my profile is corrupt (administrator profile) and a default profile will be used instead. In addition, the GUI of the server is corrupted, and it kept complaining for low disk space. Please note that the database files of my installation are kept on a different drive (network storage).
Actually, I cannot even get a DOS window, etc, so I don't know how to tackle this safely and reliably.
My MOSS 2007 installation is working fine so far, however, I am afraid that if I let this "low resources" situation continue, my database server will crash
So, I am thinking of quisciencing (shutting down gracefully) my MOSS farm, then, shutdown my MOSS 2007 Enterprise Edition Server, then ask the system administrator to shutdown the database server. After both servers are shutdown, I am thinking to power up the database server FIRST, then powerup the MOSS 2007 Enterprise Server and login to the administration database to un-quisce the MOSS farm. I don't know if this is the correct procedure to follow...
Also I cannot understand why there is a disc space issue with the system drive of the database server, since we do NOT store any sharepoint content on this drive, just the Microsoft SQL databases (master, temp, etc).
Can you please help me ???
