Hello,

We have a windows 2008 server enterprise. After rebooting server yesterday. We can't do RDP, can't ping that. But it can ping other nodes.
But safe mode with network works fine.

Contacted HP, they suggested to uninstall/reinstall HP network config Utility, no results.

Contacted Microsoft, they have done some work around, no results.
-Hide all services other than MS, no result.
-Send some hotfix, but was not able to install because we can't run anything on server other than notepad/wordpad.

- Uploaded memory dump to MS, waiting for their feedbak.
- Network ico is Red X.

Any help wold be appreciated.

Thanks.

You seem to be experienced. HP and MS should be. Even though, I'd suggest some silly checks under "normal" mode (NOT under safe mode):
a. Disabling the firewall allows you to ping the server?
b. Did you try removing the NIC from device manager and adding it again?
c. Did you search for any updated NIC drivers?
d. Is your server virus free?
e. Are there any Windows Application and/or System Logs (run eventvwr) entries that could help such as Warnings/Errors?

On Normal mode we can't do all of these, server freezes.

Does it freeze before login or after?
I didn't understand it freezes. You wrote you can ping from server to other hosts. How can you ping if it freezes?

I would check if the server is infected. You can use Kaspersky's Rescue Disk. You will be able to create a bootable CD in order to scan even with a non working operating system.
