Win 2003 Svr under VirPC 2004

Discussion in 'Virtual PC' started by Scott Hutchinson, Jul 9, 2004.

  1. I have Windows Server 2003 running under Virtual PC 2004
    on a Windows XP Pro host PC.

    I've been having a problem that Windows 2003 Server keeps
    spontaneously rebooting.

    The Windows XP host and Virtual PC don't seem to be
    rebooting.

    Any anyone offer any advice?

    Scott.

  2. BTW: It's happening every few days, and occasionally
    multiple times per day.

  4. Yes, but only...

    The previous system shutdown at 4:17:39 AM on 7/6/2004
    was unexpected.

    For more information, see Help and Support Center at
    http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.

    The previous eventlog message was from the previous day,
    and the next one is just part of starting up...

  6. Yes. What can I do with it?

  7. Post it here, assuming it's 64-66 KB (just add to the subject that there's
    an attachment)

    You could also disable the automatic reboot, so you can see the
    blue-screen info. From the system properties, go to Startup and
    Recovery and unselect "Automatically restart" this may allow you to
    see the cause.

    Please DO NOT POST IT HERE>
    sorry dude, you may be the mvp but the rest of us do not want minidumps
    here - this is not a binary forum.

  11. I know it's not a binary forum, but since there is no
    microsoft.public.binaries, it's the only way to get it out to people. Just
    having him email it to me won't do anyone any good, but posting it will get
    it seen by the people that need to see it, and having him add to the subject
    that there's a ~65 KB attachment will have the people that don't want to
    download attachments for reasons like limited bandwidth, dial-up, etc, know
    to skip that post

  12. Personally - I would do a full virus scan to ensure that you haven't been
    sasser'd / blaster'd

    Correct.

    And end of story.
    So it's OK to just dump stuff here? I don't think so.
    Er - have you ever heard of the web?
    Sorry dude - like I say, you may be an MVP but this is not a binary
    group. Quit whining and get over it.

    Small stuff, I don't see a problem with it. The best thing would be that we
    had a binary group to post things to and I'll certainly suggest it to
    Microsoft.
    Just how does the web help distribute things like this? Not everyone has a
    web page presence. Email could work, but that limits the audience as
    Jonathan said.
    Chill a bit, Jonathan is just trying to help the guy, and that's the primary
    reason this newsgroup is here. ) I know it's the reason I'm here!

  15. Hi,

    Which shows ignorance
    No one's "just dumping" anything here. A user is having a problem where
    having a < 70 KB file may help diagnose the problem. I didn't make a top
    level post saying "Any/all attachments can be posted to this group"
    The web, yes. The user has a file on his computer, his computer is on the
    web, no one has access to that file still. If you are talking about
    distributing the file over the web, then what is a better place than the
    appropriate newsgroup to distribute it? Othen than .binaries, which we
    already agree that there is none.
    I suggested that he post it giving fair warning that there is a binary file
    attached to it. You attacked me. I did not whine about the binary in a
    non-binary group, I believe that was you.

    And why do you keep saying "you may be an MVP"? I am not sure how that
    plays in to posting binaries in a non-binary group when there is no binaries
    group to post to

    Agreed. Posting binaries in non bianry forums is showing an ignorance of
    how news works.

    On a one off - no. But surely MVPs should be setting an example here.
    I think this is probably a bad idea, as it would be abused.
    Simple:
    post a mesage which says "see http://www.blah.com/coolthing" then make
    sure it's there. It's really pretty simple, and there's plenty of free
    sites, geocities, for example.
    So let's keep this group text, which is what it is designed for.

    I believe that's what Jonathan said, especially the part about marking it as
    a binary in the header.
    Easy for you and I, yes, easy for everyone asking questions here, no, not
    all have websites and knowledge of how to use them.
    Sorry, I disagree in cases like this.

    Ok - we can disagree.

    But at the end of the day. if you want to post binaries here, then let's
    get Microsoft to change the rules of these newsgroups. There is nothing
    there that says binaries are acceptable (and certainly most sensible
    hierarchies limit binaries to .binary groups only).

    So why not get MS to agree or not...

    I haven't seen anything that says they are not either.
    We'll see...
