  • dead share?

    Hi

    Server 2003. Ent edition, SP2.

    Have shared folders on the server.

    With no specific reason and at random times- the shares on the server are simply DEAD.

    Cannot get to the shares by UNC, but the weird thing is that I can get a 445 telnet connection.

    the problem will only solve upon rebooting the server.


    Found zero help on Google.

    Ideas will be highly welcome.

    Poly.

    Any juicy tidbits in the event log? Have you tried selectivly restarting key services to see which one (if any) will solve the problem upon a restart? Are any other network services unresponsive on the server when it has this problem (pinging it, SNMP, DFS replication, etc.)?

      Anything else is normal.
      No events in the EV to say that something is wrong.
      The rest of the server functionality is standard - pinging OK and all the rest of the services are ok as well...

        do yo uget any errors when trying to access the shares ?

        i know my previous employer had a situation where the Server service would randomly stop.

          Just a dumb question here, but exactly how many shares are on that server? A lot?

            Exactly 2 shares.
            Not too much I guess

              when the share dies, does it die for everyone ?

              try restarting workstation srevice and server service.
              What other software do you have installed on this server, what roles does it play ?

                Are these Admin SHARES or user created SHARES?
                1 1 was a racehorse.
                2 2 was 1 2.
                1 1 1 1 race 1 day,

                    try setting some performance counters, so you can see if maybe something goes amiss.

                    also - wha tbackup and antivirus software are you using ?

                      Will try to use performance counters.

                      Using HP Data Protector
                      Symantec End Point protectior (V 11)

                      BTW - yesterday we disable the antivirus after reading in some places that it may cause the problem.
                      Will keep you posted.

                        Hi

                        disabling the SEP didn't help

                        happened today again, tried to reset the server service - no luck.

                        when trying to reach a share getting an error, attaching file.

                        any suggestions?

                          to be honest - and I know you tried the workstation and server services.. but to be honest, it looks like a fault we used to get at my old employer.. all the shares and the server service would just stop... eventually i think they deduced it was to do with commvault.

                          maybe try running a netmon capture.. ? although that's excessive, since you don't know when it's going to die..
