  • Exmgmt.exe taking 60% cpu

    Hello,

    I have a SBS 2003 R2 with all the update and this morning when I first open my Outlook, I had received six emails that say "Processor activity alert on the server".".

    I found out that the EXMGMT.EXE process was taking 60% of the CPU and it still does. And now, it is taking 99% at the momment I write this message.

    Can I kill the process without hurthing my server?

    Thank you!

    Have you Googled "exmgmt.exe"?

    I'd suggest running the SBS BPA to see if that highlights any issues. And I'd also recommend scheduling a reboot rather than just killing the process.

      Yes I did run the SBS BPA and it didn't show me any issues except for NIC drivers outdated.

      I will do a reboot of the server tonight and see what happend.

      Thank you Gareth!

        Ok. Check what the CPU usage is before you reboot - you may find that it's back to normal. In which case, you'll have a reboot scheduled which you can use to update those drivers
