    2008R2 SP1 broke my file server

    Morning,

    My Hyper-V client running Server 2003 crashed twice this morning, I just updated the Integrated Services Disk so fingers/toes/eyes crossed that its okay now.

    Seemed okay last night after the update but now its getting hammered a bit it crashed.

    You definitely have to upgrade the integrated services disk.

    Are you using dynamic memory? Maybe its running out or something

    Off-topic question but why virtualize a fileserver? Isn't that bound to cause problems with resources?

    Check that your static IP config is still in there - I've herd that SP1 can do a few odd things to the NIC drivers.

    It seems to be fine now, after second reboot. I did notice the network emualtor (somethign like that) had crashed so I thought it was the integrated services.

    I run it as a file server because there are loads of debates on this and as I am a smallish netowrk it usually runs happily. I have one for the OS and another VHD with the files on a seperate controller.

    There's no reason not to virtualise almost any kind of server these days. With a decent Hypervisor and some fast storage, you'll often get better performance out of a VM than you will in a physical box. You also have the ever-useful advantage of being to throw more storage at the box faster than you can say holycrapIneedmoredisk. I've seen SQL, Exchange, File, print and DCs all virtualised very effectively with no performance hit whatsoever.
