Can not access Windows 2003 share

By furat66 ·
I do have windows 2003 domain with 4 controllers & 1 member server, suddenly I loss access to the shares in member server, but I can ping to it & RDP to it, The only way to get the shares back it by rebooting the server & it happens randomly some times 3 times a week some times once a month.

Anything in the event logs?

by robo_dev In reply to Can not access Windows 20 ...

such as the 'server' service crashing?

In general, when shares go away, either there's something nasty going on on the LAN (e.g. a broadcast storm) or one of the services in the host has crashed.

Other potential issues are any AV or Firewall solutions on the server....Symantec Endpoint Protection?

If there is nothing in the event logs, my next stop would be looking at the port counters of the ethernet switch for things like CRC errors.

The free protocol analyzer Wireshark can be very helpful to determine if the issue is that SMB requests are not getting to the server versus the server is not responding to those requests.
