SBS 2008 Falling of network at random times
Posted on 2011-09-26
A client of mine has SBS 2008. It is only a 5 user site, it is a ML350 G6 with 2 500GB mirror drives.
over the past 6 months the Server seems to just go offline. The monitor goes to sleep so i cannot see what is happening but the Server itself is still on. The router and swith are still functional. I cannot RDP to server or ping the server. If i point the DNS to the router i get internet.
I have looked in the event viewer and cant see anything that is giving me a clue.
The only way i can get back on line is to hold the power button down or sometimes i have to oull the plug.
Obviously when this happens i cant acces any files on the server either.
I have also changed the power to the other connection. Still no luck.
I was going to format and start again as i think it is operating system issue.
Has anyone seen this or can give me some clues.
