server 2003 suddenly invisible on network
Posted on 2010-11-29
Ok I have a critical issue, I have a windows server 2003 box that will not respond to anything on the network. It’s a single server, running active directory and exchange. No particular errors in the logs, it can see everything on the network, it can ping everything. But nothing can ping it, our barracuda box can’t deliver email to it, no DNS lookups from it.
Tried a new nic card since it has the same problem in safe mode with network support, updated the driver. It’s definitely something in windows.
Please help, if I don’t get it fixed this evening, I will have to start reloading it.
