  • SBS2011 Hangs with no errors

    I am experiencing the same issues as this guy here:
    petri.co.il/forums/showthread.php?t=58285

    The server hung, could not login via rdp or directly, it did not respond to pings. After a forced restart the server booted and the event logs were free of any errors/warnings indicating what might have caused the hang. Since it did not crash there is no dump to analyze.

    Just like the previous poster's my store.exe gobbles up all the RAM it can, however, previous to this hang the server ran fine for 6 months without restarts with Exchange having eaten all RAM, then I restarted it two weeks ago and now this happened.

    Has anybody solved this issue by following petri.co.il/forums/showthread.php?t=35990
    to reduce the amount of RAM store.exe is allowed to eat?

    12 GB RAM

    HP Diags return no errors on hardware.

    I'd suggest posting on sysinternals forum. They like sorting all the mysterious hangs, freezes and the like problems. They also have specialized, free tools for the job.

        Exchange "eating" all the RAM is normal. It manages memory dynamically and releases RAM whenever there is a demand for it.
        TIA

          Thank you for replying. I am aware of this fact, however, as I pointed out, other users suggested this "solution" for the issue I am experiencing, thus, I asked if anybody had any success with it.

            Any updates on the issue? I have the same problem and it seems to be related to journaling. The server ran fine for months then hang once a week since I enabled journaling...
