    Server Disappearing

    Shares from our Windows Server 2008 machine disappear daily, these are being used are our shared docs. I can remote desktop to it but not connect to the server via windows explorer.

    arrived this morning all was fine, now it seems to have gone FUBAR agen. i have tried so far:
    • removing from the domain
    • deleting the shares
    • rejoining then reconnecting
    • have swapped the nw port (generally for the sake of it lol)
    • tried restarting services left and right (only one that sounds right is 'server for NFS'


    just removed the file services roll see how this goes

    want to do a complete reinstall but cant get in til this sat.

    only thing to solve it is a restart. but if stations have lost the mappings they need a restart too.

    please please any ideas, clues, insights.....anything

    have being trying since last week to resolve this no joy yet

    Are the NIC drivers borked?

    Try re-installing the NICs. I know you tried a different port but I suspect it will be the same make/model and hence using the same driver.

    am gonna reinstall (during school time lol) have the old srver have swapped to that for time being. when i reinstall will use the drivers on disk or site not standard win drivers suppose will be a good idea.

    another weird thing t'was doing, when setting up shares took ages to search for users/usertypes off the domain. sharing the files wasnt too slow (folders of 20gb gonna take a while to apply permissions) but searching on the old old server and other1s is done in seconds not mins.

    Well 2 weeks ago i spoke to a fellow engineer that ran into the same problem as yours... shares where disappearing on a w2k8 server box. It seems that a server.exe service was running on the box... as he investigated ...he pinned down the problem due to a faulty client that was creating havoc on the server. That client was infected with a trojan/virus. He also told me that he was running symantec AV that had not recognised that virus.. after cleanig the network (he used NOD32).. his problems went away..

    I hope this helps somehow
