    Hmm, thought I had a machine that I could put this RAM in but I don't

    I've moved the RAM around and reseated the CPU's, I'll see how it gets on.

    Re: Server freezing

    Did you say you have SAV on this server? If you have SAV on it, you are not running the EM Library on it are you? We have big issues with EM Library and memory problems, and it just eats all the ram avalable and then locks up the machines, and when it was out DC, locked the LAN up as well. The process that caused the issue was DLLLoader and it would load up 100's of times, and eat away at the ram

    Re: Server freezing

    When I say SAV I mean Symantec Antivirus, isn't it Sophos that has the EM Library?

    Gonna keep an eye on the server again today, I think it might be happening at times of peak load like lesson change over.

    ah rite, SAV = Sophos Anti-Virus to most people (or atleast most people I know). I still tend to call Symantecs co-orperate anti-v NAV despite it not being branded Norton

    Re: Server freezing

    Hope you sorted it. Anyway, I had a server "freeze" like what you described. I found out one of the scsi hard disks was "faulty", it would work and later fail at random. I had to cold reboot the server every few weeks. I would also have to continually rebuild the array. Sent back the drive got a new one and now no problems.

    Re: Server freezing

    I'm throwing this question back open again!

    The server's still randomly freezing and I can't find anything wrong with it. Spent a good hour on the phone to a Dell tech and he couldn't see anything at all wrong with the hardware or software. We ran a full DSET report and submitted it to dell and their other tech's couldn't see anything.

    In the end they left asking me to reinstall powerchute and they closed the case, which was nice of them.

    The server itself doesn't "lock up" straight away, I can still see the desktop and open My Computer, as soon as i try to look at a share on the server then the desktop locks up.

    It freezes all the domain clients on the network, its just weird!

    Re: Server freezing

    It doesn't have an old version of powerchute on it does it? The one with expired certificates that makes 'weird' things happen?

    Re: Server freezing

    It's got Powerchute Business 7.0.4 on it, which isn't the latest version but it's not old old, It's from 2005.

    Is it this version that's affected?

    Re: Server freezing

    Remembered reading a RM bulletin on the powerchute problem sometime ago. Just checked and the solution was to upgrade to version 7.0.4

    It was caused by a certificate expiring in July 2005 on the older version. So not sure it's the cause of your problem

    Try disabling message router service- the envelope folder in sophos directory can grow to gigs and it can slow the server down- had to disable it a few times when the server kept freezing up.
