2003 Server restart taking hours
Posted on 2011-04-26
We have a Dell PE 2600 running SBS 2003 SP2. We had Arcserve 15 installed at the backup. We were having a problem with the Sharepoint agent and when we called CA, they said that the entire CA installation was corrupt and removed it. When the server was restarted, it took 2+ hours to complete the reboot only to not find out that several services inclusing IPSEC, SMTP, IMAP, among others did not start. Restarted again and 2+ hours later are still waiting. Would prefer to not do a full restore. Any thoughts?
