W2K Loosing Network Connection

By ajordon ·
Over the past few weeks several of our Windows 2000 machines started dropping their network connection. If the user reboots the connection is restored. This is occurring on different subnets across our MAN.

Is this a known issue?

There are a plethora of possible reasons for this.

Are the servers "dropping" their connection and then cannot access anything locally and across the MAN? Or just the MAn access is the problem? (is it one particular site on the MAN (say the main office where everything conencts to) that you have problems accessing? Is it happenning everywhere or just certain places? Do you have monitoring on the wan and lan devices to ID problems?

Have you been able to trace the ports back to a particular switch? Perhaps you have a faulty or ill-configured switch.

May also be NIC drivers. Perhaps it's worth a looksee to see if these machines are using a similar driver version.
