SBS Server 2003 has no network and most services will not start
Posted on 2010-09-02
I have a SBS 2003 Server which has been working fine for a numbver of years. It did an unexpected reboot last night and now when it is restarted a lot of services will not start.
If I go to the Services and try and start any of them manual they fale to start.
If I go to the application log although I can see a number of errors I cannot open the individual events.
Also if I go to Network Connections no Adaptors are displayed. However, in the Device manager the Network adaptor is all working fine.
I have disabled all services except the MS ones. I have also stopped all items in the Startup.
I am currently running a check disk with the fix switch.
I presume that until the Server thinks it has a network card it will not load any of the networking services.
There is a second network card installed in the Server which is currently disabled. I enabled it and it also does not appear in the network adaptor list.
This is urgent so please reposnd asap.
