2008 servers freezing. 2003 ok though!
Edit: Typo on topic! I haven't time travelled and seen MSs future offering! - Fixed (Ric_)
I've been trying to bring 4 of our 5 Fujitsu-Siemens RX300s online with 2008 std 32bit server. Unfortunately they all randomnly freeze. Our existing 2003 SP2 servers are all fine. Fujitsu have taken one back to bench test and no surprise it is 100% fine for them!
- 3 servers are running 2008 with TS 32bit installed and Office 2007 enterprise(will be running 100 Thin Client)
- 1 server is running 2008 as a DC (demoted before sending this server to Fujitsu for testing), Backup Exec 12d and is destined to run all our apps
- 1 server (not online yet) will be running Exchange 2007
Our event logs show nothing unusual, the fujistu tools show nothing either. The servers are not under load, at the moment we only have 29 Thin client online. And the apps server does naff all as there's no point when it freezes!
As all is well with the server at Fujitsu HQ I can only assume it is something on my setup causing it, but surely if it was a config issue it would affect the 2003 servers?
I've thought about a pwer issue, but the new servers (and old file server) are plugged into APC UPSs which don't show that they're overloaded (old DC's are on own UPSs). And I think the Fujitsu tools would show if it was power.
I'm at a loss to this and it's now starting to cause us a problem as we need the Thin Client online, and our old Exchange server is out of disk space so the new one is desperately needed!
I'm open to all suggestions no matter how obvious they maybe to try!
