We have a very strange problem with one of our customers networks. We are running Small Business Server 2003. Which is connected to a Gigabyte switch. All workstations are connected to the same switch.
The users have email and network drives mapped. One program that accesses a network DB is called Estimation.
The problem we have is most days normally around 5/5.30 the server will loose all network connectivity for around 15/20 seconds.
There is nothing in the event logs around the time it drops out. We only found this out by running a ping command to four different devices on the network and outputting to a log file.
At first we thought it was the switch but all other workstations can ping each other and the internet so not the switch as such.
This wouldn't be a problem but the software we use called estimation cannot handle the dropouts. We then have to task manager the program and start again.
As i said this normally happens around 5/5.30 but sometimes it does happen during the day.
Veeam is happy to provide a FREE NFR server license to certified engineers, trainers, and bloggers. It allows for the non‑production use of Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows. This license is valid for five workstations and two servers.
