    Server & Workstation Services

    Hi

    Has anyone had the problem of the Server and Workstation Service stopping unexpectedly?

    All my 2003 servers on the curriculum network has this problem, but strangely my admin 2003 server doesn’t.

    I have googled with no success, its frustrating

    Anyone got any ideas??

    Cheers!

    Nothing out of the ordinary, I have set the Workstation and Server services to automatically restart if they stop. They start ok for a while. Something springs to mind about the SvcHost.exe having a problem on a few of the workstations, I just put it down to needing re-ghosting.

    I have done a anti virus scan with Sophos and also with the Live One Care.

    The only entries out of the ordinary are:

    I am having the same issue as you. It is happening on 4 Windows 2003 SP1 Citrix servers.

    These articles relate to the issue I am having:

    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/910666 and http://support.microsoft.com/kb/895575/

    Will try applying the patch to a Development server and see how it goes.
