I have a SBS 2003 SP2, 3BG Memopry & 250GB HDD, partitioned with 30GB - OS & 203GB for Data.  I keep getting an error message in the Evebt Log of: Regeneration completed on volume Volume1 C:  then Regeneration completed on volume Volume2 F.

This happens several times a day and the server is very unstable at this point.  This server was working fine up until about 3 weeks ago.

I would be inclined to believe that a drive in your RAID volume is intermittent.  Check your device logs both windows and manufacturers.

I checked both logs and nothing inducates there is a problem wth the drives.  I ran CHKDSK & the problem stopped for two days.  Now it just shuts down at night.  So the problem with the intermitent shutdowns during the day have stopped.  I am running a CHKDSK again to see if that will clear it up.

After running a CHKDSK again, it said the volume is clean.  I thought it might be a problem with the Live Update from Symantec so i stopped that as well and it still is powering itself down during the night and sometimes during the day.  There is no indication of a disk drive error in the system event logs.  WHAT TO DO NOW???

What kind of server?  If it is a Dell or HP check the  health logs from their monitoring. It probably isn't in standard event logs.

It is a custom built server, with an intel motherboard.  There isn't much in the event logs.  I replaced the power supply and am waiting to see if that corrected the problem.  Apparently the regeneration is being done due to the shut down of the machine.  I don't think the drives are causing the shutdown.

Rebuilds do always occur when not shut down properly.  It needs to verify the volume is still intact.
