Windows 2008 SBS - Intermittent Server Hang / Non-Responsive

    I have 2 Servers at different locations:
    Both are Windows 2008 SBS / Exchange is used /
    1 is a physical install / 1 is a virtual install

    Both servers will stop allowing access to shares, email and logins
    intermittently.
    The servers are monitored 24/7 and all services and connections report in
    normally.

    The mouse and keyboard stop responding and a remote connection into the
    system is not allowed.
    The only way to correct the issue is to hard reboot the system.

    I have not seen any events logged in the event viewer that provides any
    detailed information.

    Has anyone run into this before?
    I have been told that the issue is related to network card drivers or
    settings and also that a Hotfix is available from Microsoft – however I still
    am unable to locate this Hotfix.

    Any Help?

    Cris,

    No AV scannign Exchange - The hang happens intermittantly - it has been know
    to hapen in the middle of the day when the AV would not be scanning the
    server.

    We have 3 different servers with this issue - all 2008 SBS
    2 virtual and 1 physical

    Yes we have - I have spoken with other techs about this issue - It seems to
    be wide spread - however I cannot locate the hot fix from Microsoft that
    addresses this issue.

    Sean,
    We have not had time to continue looking into this issue.
    The hotfix that others have used to corect this issue does nto help if you
    are already on SP 1 or SP2.
    We are managing this issue currently by restarting the servers every 7 days.

    please let me know if you locate a correction!

    Nick
