    O-oh .. BSOD on Server ..

    Ok, so I've upgraded Papercut NG to MF today and the latest version, and thought right, it's a good time to restart the servers as county tech's had put on a policy server and stuff (I was off ill, so they sorted it for some new WAPS).

    Anywho, the server is BSOD-ing on boot .. I get something about the portmap.sys failing (I will attempt to get full information).

    I tried to Safe Mode it to check any issues, but that just restarts without a BSOD.

    I don't suppose anyone has a bright spark idea in the meantime whilst I try to get some more info.

    I have a second server, but with disk space being an issue, the staff and student files aren't DFS'd ..

    EIK .. *could be a late one tonight*

    Gah .. no option for last good configuration .. ah well ..

    Right .. error:

    A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

    portmap.sys

    DRIVER_UNLOADED_WITHOUT_CANCELLING_PENDING_OPERATI ONS

    If this is the first time... If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

    Check to make sure any new hardward or software is proeperly installed. I this is a new installation, as your hardware or software manufacturer for any windows updates you might need.

    If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode ....

    Technical information:

    *** STOP: 0x000000CE (0xFFFFF880055DCB18, 0x00000000000000000, 0xFFFFF880055DCB18, 0x0000000000000000)

    is it a pdc or bdc?

    in safe mode disable the portmap starting,

    copy portmap.sys from another computer, check its version / size

    Hiya

    It's a BDC. Unfortunately, I can't log in even when I boot in safemode as the darn thing just restarts after about 10 seconds of being on the CTRL+ALT+DEL (or I might just get a C+A+D in before it reboots)

    Just running a memory test at the moment to check there's nothing in that. See what happens, but in the mean time leave an apologetic note for the staff briefing in the morning me thinks!


    Ooo .. meant to say, before I dug the disk out to run the mem test (the 2008 R2 install disc that is) I had a different BSOd (attached)photo2.JPG

    Well, at 2:10 this morning the server sprung back into life after I got e-mails from the UPS every 15 minutes or so from leaving work until that point! So for now, it's back up. Guess what my jobs going to be over half term (or sooner if I can as I can't risk it falling over fully!)
