Hi guys

This has been going for sometime and it appears to be intermittent, the server runs two NICís with static IPís. One of the NICís runs dual IP, both NICís are in two separate subnets.

Both NICís would stop responding to any incoming requests to access the server, and canít be pingíed as well. The only way to get them up again is to reboot the server. The server works fine if you login to it physically but nothing appears in the event logs! Just to mention that the above happens over-night!

I would be grateful if you could direct me in the right directionÖ

Many thanks

By any chance is this an HP server? I ask because I'm having a simiar issue with a DL140 running 2003.
I've done a ton of stuff to fix the issue, but haven't been able to isolate the cause. I did find some good info today on HP's site that talked about problems with NIC Teaming and I downloaded and installed an update they offered. I'll know tomorrow if it worked.
Apparently it's an issue with a lot of dual NIC systems running WIN2K3 so, even if you're not running an HP, it may be the same problem. Check with the vendor for updated firmware and any patches.

All our servers are supplied by HP so maybe this is the problem! I will have a look on their site.
