Hello Experts,

For some time I have been having problems with my server. Sometimes 2 - 5 times per week, the server crashes. I have absolutely no experience dealing with server crashes and therefore would love to be pointed in the right direction of what to look for and when looking at the information, determine what is casuing the issue.

Also, almost every evening, database connections timeout causing havoc for my users!

The server simply runs classic ASP scripts to around 30 users on IIS7. There is 3 small MS SQL databases (MS SQL 2008), the biggest has approx 300k records. The server has 8GB memory, 64-Bit and Quad 2.66GHZ processors.

Thank you very much for any help you can provide me with.

David

I would start out by going through the application and system logs in the event viewer, that should give you a place to start as to what is causing the box to crash.

Thanks for your speedy help. I will review the event viewer after the next crash and try and determine what the problem was.
