Server 2008 R2 Failure
Posted on 2011-09-29
I was doing routine maintenance last night on our new Server 2008 R2 machine, when Quickbooks gave me some issues when trying to apply the update. Ran the QBInstallTool, which then requested that I reboot my server. So I did... I had rebooted my server not more than 45 minutes before hand without issue at all. But after trying the QBtool, as soon as the server booted up to show the mouse icon, right before it shows that it is loading up the services, it beeps and reboots... stuck in an endless loop... I have already been on the phone with Microsoft (indian) tech support for over 5 hours trying to get this thing back up... I need help... All of the automated Microsoft tools are not working. They just error out. We even did a command line backup restore, of the C: drive (windows drive) to no avail... I need help and suggestions!
Using an Areca ARC-1222 RAID card, with 8 SATA II drives in raid array. Has been working flawlessly for 3 months now.
