NT 4.0 sp5 hangs with Exch srv 5.5 sp2

By rodolgee ·
Hi guys, does any body hava a clue?, Some times our server just hangs, what I do is restart it and stop all services of Exchange server and it works, then I start the rervices again, if I put automatic in the service way of starting chances are the server will hang again, sometimes days passes and everything works fine, but I'm afraid it will hang anytime. What can it be ??

NT 4.0 sp5 hangs with Exch srv 5.5 sp2

I don't have a specific answer for you, but I have seen a number of bizarre problems disappear when SP3 was applied to Exchange v5.5.

My experience has been that when a server just hangs with nothing logged to the Event Log, it usually turns out to be hardware. But before I started swapping out hardware, I would do the Service Pack. Applying the service pack will also eliminate some potential problems with the Exchange databases because it updates the schema and, I believe, defrags the database as well.

This kind of problem can also occur with database corruption and the usual fix is to run an off-line procedure with ESEUTIL.

I'd be glad to continue this discussion off-the-forum if you have other information or questions.

regards!

I agree with Paul, althought I don't have that much experience I have found that running the optimizer regularly would prevent problems also shut down your server for a few minites to refresh your resources, that's if it does not have sufficient RAM.

Good Luck.
