    Every 24 hours our SBS2003 server hangs.

    19/06/2009 3:21:53
    20/06/2009 3:22:16
    21/06/2009 3;22:45


    In the system log.
    ERROR 19/06/2009 3:21:53 DCOM 10010

    And In the application log
    ERROR 19/06/2009 3:22:50 Userenv 1065
    ERROR 19/06/2009 3:22:50 Userenv 1030

    etc etc

    By which stage it is "All Oer, Rover" and the only solution is the big red
    reset switch

    So what causes DCOM to die? And why every 24 hours?

    Its working fine up till then. I've tried the BPA, but have not fixed it :(
    Its an old box, but it used to work fine. Maybe its time to build a a new
    srever from scratch.

    ?

    I would find out if any scheduled tasks or maintenance (exchange comes to
    mind) run around that time and maybe disable them for a day. Look for
    events before the issue - a lot of the ones afterwards are caused by your
    server going offline.

    Usual HW stuff applies as well - Check the servers fans - power supply,
    chipset, case, and CPU. Verify network hardware. Does the server room get
    hot overnight?

    Also suggest you run the SBS BPA and fix what it indicates:
