So run
msconfig  and disable unnecessary application

For sure it is not a serious problem. Do not worry

tried Last Know good configuration , but one thing we observered after removing the power cable we are able power up the server in normal mode, but when plug the network cable , it is not pinging from out side, but it is pinging from inside.

I am not able to disbale the netwrok connection & try to enable but immediately hanged the Server.

After disbaling the IPSEC & Firewall Server , Server came up properly & able to connect the network as well, checking the logs for root cause of this issue.

glad u got it working
do u have a hdwr firewall - then maybe you can leave the software disabled
LKGC only works after first reboot
then it becomes non-functioning
IPSEC should not have a direct correlation to boot
it is designed to secure communications
- let us know what u see in the logs - interesting

sorry it was windows firewall service.

I have not found any issue other than network card malfuctioning ( event ID : 4201 TCPIP)

I am not sure it will came up agian or not aftre server rebbot :( , I have not done any further reboot becuase production server & services both came up & I just came after New Year Party , so let see other day :)

One thing I forgot, Server NIC & Firware driver version is very old ( 2006) which need to update as per HP recomendation , as server abruptly rebooted so many times before.

Thanks to all of your quick support

Wish You very very Happy New Year to all :)

Hi,

As you mentioned you are not able to ping from outside and able to ping from Inside.You can try replacing your network cable with cross cabling and check.
