SBS 2003 Server Freezing After hours

ferdie
Hi All

I have a problem with one of my Clients servers. The server freezes about 1 in every 3 evenings sometime between 2AM and 6AM, not always at the same time. The server become non-responsive and needs to be reset. Mouse cursor still moves.

It never ever freezes during the day.

There are times that it will go 2 weeks without freezing and sometimes it will freeze every night.

Any advice on where to start troubleshooting

Check the event viewer for those evenings that the server freezes, see if there are errors logged. You might also need to check the scheduled tasks if there are active task for specific date and time which the server will execute, that might help you find the cause why the server freezes, for example it might scheduled to download updates on certain patches and it fails or something, start with this and the errors on event viewer then update us what you found after..
