Starting about three weeks ago we started to have problems with one of our Microsoft File servers. Users could no longer browse to the file shares anymore. A restart would fix the issue. It started out happening once every couple of days, and then increased to more than once per day. Last week we performed 60 some windows updates (it was behind) trying to resolve the issue. The issue disappeared for six days, and then came rearing its head back again. There has been nothing showing in the Event Viewer, however, I am unable to restart the Server service when this problem is occuring. On a side note, a few weeks prior to this issue beginning, we joined all computers on the same network to a domain, but we did not join the server.
Any help resolving or pointing in the direction of fixing this problem would be greatly appreciated
