Resetting every 72 hours

Discussion in 'Windows Server' started by Mark Alexander, Mar 29, 2005.

  1. I use Avimark software for my vet's office, their tech support has told me
    that i need to reset each workstation everynight, and to reset the SBS 2003
    server every 72 hours. They say that microsoft requires that their servers
    need a reset every 72 hours. I need to know if this is true and if so were is
    the documentation located in Microsoft's manuals. I always thought that any
    server was made to run 24/7. Please help

  2. We (Microsoft) make no such requirement on SBS or any of our server or
    desktop operating system.
    If their software is poorly written to have such things a memory leaks etc
    they may require you to reboot your desktops and/or servers, but it is not
    our requirement.
    You are entirely correct servers are supposed to run non stop 24/7.

    As the MSFT guy said...Total [email protected]#*(

    There was a problem in Win98 that could cause issues if the workstation was
    left up and running...and that's it.

    I've got 10+ SBS servers at clients offices, and some have easily gone a
    month without rebooting.
