    every week


    we have a file server running Win 2000 Svr SP4 on an SBS 2003 domain, and up
    until recently it has been working fine.

    a couple of weeks ago, we installed SBS 2003 SP1 on the domain controller.
    since then, the file server keeps crashing every week, and we are unable to
    access it on the network or log into it via the console. we have to hit the
    reset button to get it back online.

    i have no idea what is causing this, but i keep noticing these events in the
    event logs....

    Source: License Service
    Event ID: 213
    Type: Warning
    Computer: HELPDESK
    Description: Replication of license information failed because the License
    Logging Service on server \\UPTSERVER could not be contacted.

    Source: Netlogon
    Event ID: 5783
    Type: Error
    Computer: HELPDESK
    Description: The session setup to the Windows NT or Windows 2000 Domain
    Controller \\uptserver.thegeeks.local for the domain THEGEEKS is not
    responsive. The current RPC call from Netlogon on \\HELPDESK to
    \\uptserver.thegeeks.local has been cancelled.

    can anyone help me shed any light on this?

  3. hi,

    both servers are runnign the LicenseLogging service, and the times are in
    sync. the servers can also ping each other, and the DNS settings are correct.

    the SBS 2003 Server is running APC Powerchute 7.04 already.
