server 2000

By ldemaison@kendallschools. ·
I am a tech in a small school district. I am running a HP Netserver E60 with server 2000 and 512 mb RAM on it. I have updated everything and still am having a problem. It freezes almost every evening either before the backup starts or during the backup. once it freezes you have to do a hard shut down. it may takes 2 or more reboots to bring it up cleanly. I have updated the tape drivers (it is running veritas for backup software). Does anyone have a suggestion on what to look at next. there is nothing in the event viewer to give any clues. Often it just says the previous shut down at what ever time was unexpected.

same prob

by JOE.HUTCHINSON1 In reply to server 2000

I had the exact same problem with a sure store 40I
i solved it by moving the scsi card from one pci to another as manually changing the resorce settings did not work

hope this helps

me too

Yes, I had the same problem with Veritas BackUp Exec. Swapping the scsi card to force the IRQ change worked for me too.

You sure havent told us how much free space you have and which applications you are running.
Please be monitoring task mgr>processes & your event viewer.
You might get the culprit.
