Exchange 2003 SP2 stops working
Posted on 2011-03-16
I help a small non-profit organization with their IT-issues, they have a Windows 2003 Server Enterprise SP2 with DC, Exchange 2003 SP2, Mail Security and Corporate Symantec AV running.
The server is an old PE R700 dual-P4 2.8GHz processor with 3Gb of Ram.
For some reason their Exchange server stops working every 2-3 days and the only way to get it running is to restart the server; sometimes some Exchange services don't start on the reboot and I have to start them manually.
I am not on site and many times I am busy at my "full-time" job and cannot investigate when the exchange is down but rather at night (after hours). the problem is that the logs don't have any errors recorded.
My question is: what will be the best way to fix the problem remotely? or do I need to reinstall Exchange?
Keep in mind this is a non-profit org, so funds are limited.
Thank you for your help!
