Server 2008 disconnects

I have a small office (12 clients) witch I do a little side work at. I'm not there more then an hour or 2 a week so most of the issues get told to me without actually seeing it happening at the time of the error.

They run a Windows 2008 server with Win7 clients and I've been told that they've been having an issue that happens every night around 6:45. It seems that at 6:45 everyone gets clicked off the network on a routine basis. They can resync and reopen programs and work but it happens consistently at 6:45.

Because it's tax season we have not run the new patch for any of the OS's and I have yet to get in to the office to check the logs but was looking to see if anyone else has dealt with something like that so that I ahve an idea going in as to what to look for.

I assume since it's happening to everyone that it's most likely a server issue. I haven't had a lot of time on a Win2008 server outside of their office so I'm not familiar with any new diagnostic tools I can use to check this problem.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Check the eventlog of workstations and servers.

- is there an unexpected shutdown? (power-loss to the server)
- is there link-loss? (power-loss to the switch)
- .....

I can't inmaging it's an OS problem, but you never know.

Check sheduled software on the server

If you have group policies check to see if they are not limit access around that period.

Nothing in the log and they've said the problem hasn't happened as often. Still haven't narrowed it down but since they are an accounting firm I can't try any fixes until later in April. I'll start with the service pack and go from there.

Thanks
