Beeps and recurring errors

    I have noticed that our SBS server emits an audible beep every now and then.
    About once an hour. Does anyone have any idea why?

    I checked the Event Log to see if this was beeping associated with an error.
    I couldn't find any error that occurred at the same time as the beeps. I did
    however notice a number of recurring "warning" type errors, which I am
    wondering whether they are normal or not.

    The first is in the Application log. It has event ID 2000 and the source is
    given as MSExchangeIS Mailbox and the category is MTA Connections. The error
    says: "Verify that the Microsoft Exchange MTA service has started.
    Consecutive ma-open calls are failing with error 3051.". This error appears
    quite often, several times a day.

    The other is in the DNS log. It has event ID 7062 and the source is DNS.
    These errors are slightly different but they all say something like "The DNS
    server encountered a packet addressed to itself on IP address
    The packet is for the DNS name "". The packet will
    be discarded. This condition usually indicates a configuration error.". These
    appear quite often, at least once an hour or more.

    I configured the server using the wizards and everything seems to be working
    fine, including email and Internet. We are doing email through smtp and using
    Exchange. So I am just curious what these errors are and whether I need to
    fix anything. We have SBS Premium 2003 and also ISA Server 2004 installed.

  2. Check with the server manufacturer. A steady beep could indicate some type
    of hardware failure such as one of the hard drives, fans, power supply (if
    you have redundant), etc....

    Do this today - don't wait
