ok, I have a windows 2003 server which is running an LSI RAID controller with a raid 5 config and 2 partions (a c drive & a data drive) The system is not online, has not take any updates whatsoever with the exception of data going into the pervasive DB that run on it. Anyway, all of a sudden it is running horrid. It is hanging up, if you click shutdown you will not get the shutdown options, those connected to the pervastive DB are seeing large amount of freezing when trying to save data, etc. I can ping the machine from any of the clients and it is not dropping in/out on nework, no latency, etc. Any ideas would be hugely appreciated. Thank you very much.
