Server losing network connectivity for a few seconds
Posted on 2011-10-21
Hi all -
I'm having a bit of a problem with one of my Windows Server 2003 boxes.
I noticed this because we have a program that runs from an SQL database on the server and users have started getting kicked off of the program in the middle of entering/retrieving data and it was confirmed when I was remoting into the machine and lost connection for a couple of seconds.
I ran a ping from my machine to the server and almost all of the pings were returned in <1ms, but for a short (5-10 second) period of time, I received 'Request timed out.' or ':Destination host unreachable.' errors, and then the pings started returning again.
This is definitely a major issue because I have about 15 users using the program that is on this server, and they keep getting booted off of the program every time this happens.
I don't even know where to start troubleshooting this one. Thanks for your help!
