Windows 2008 Server connectivity issues...

    Hello All,

    I am having a problem with our new Windows 2008 Server and I'm not
    exactly sure where the problem lies. The issue is that every so often
    (twice in the past 7 days) it requires a reboot to allow for accessing/
    reading/writing to it's shares or connecting via remote desktop (we
    don't keep a monitor, mouse, or keyboard on it). After the reboot
    everything seems to work properly.

    Specs:
    Windows 2008 Server Standard x64 SP2
    RAM: 4.00 GB

    Roles installed:
    Active Directory Domain Services
    DNS Server
    File Services
    Print Services
    Web Server (IIS)

    I did a Windows Update recently (1/11/2011) after the first
    connectivity issues so it should have the most recent updates (and may
    have caused the problem).

    The Event Viewer has the following Errors in the past 7 days:

    WindowsUpdateClient - ID 20 - KB967723 (two instances from the update
    1/11/2011 but was able to get it installed with a manual download and
    install).

    PrintSpooler - ID 55 (many) - Printer Redirect

    TermDD - ID 56 (one)

    NfsServer - ID 1006 (one) - Configured it for Active Directory Lookup.

    GroupPolicy - ID 1058 (22 errors last 7 days) -

    The processing of Group Policy failed. Windows attempted to read the
    file <filename> from a domain controller and was not successful. Group
    Policy settings may not be applied until this event is resolved. This
    issue may be transient and could be caused by one or more of the
    following:

    a) Name Resolution/Network Connectivity to the current domain
    controller.
    b) File Replication Service Latency (a file created on another domain
    controller has not replicated to the current domain controller).
    c) The Distributed File System (DFS) client has been disabled.

    I have not done a great deal of Windows administration over the past
    several years and am not up to date on the newest operating systems.
    I've not done a great deal of searching on the different errors but
    have not found any resolutions. Any hints on what to investigate or
    check on would be greatly apprecitated. Please let me know if there
    is any additional information that would help with finding a solution.

    Thanks in advance,

    Herb

    Sorry, I meant to say I HAVE done a great deal of searching for
    resolutions.
