Writing to a mapped network crashes the server

    I have clients mapped across a domain to a shared newtork drive on 2 K3 sbs.

    All hotfixes/Patches/ Virus Defs applied

    Whenever they write to the shared directory, it crashes the server.

    To try and get this working, I've completely opened this directory to
    everyone. (Everyone : Full Control)

    Event logs show only "Unexpected shutdown at *.*.

    I'm completely lost as to where to look next.

    Thanks in advance.

  2. please identify this shared network dirve. is it an internal or external
    hard drive? is it physically on the sbs server or a network attached device?
    you get the idea ...

    What kind of drives (as Kevin asked)?
    What antivirus software are you running, and if you disable the realtime
    scanning, does everything work right?

  4. Shane,

    In addition to what they've already asked.. I'd be kinda curious if this is
    being triggered by the client/traffic or something on the server itself.
    For example, can you map a drive to another client and copy a file to the
    mapped drive successfully? From the server, if you map a drive to the same
    share that the client machines are.. can you then copy a file to that mapped
    drive (effectively from the server to the server via the mapped drive).

    Might also look at network card, network card drivers, as well as,
    configuring the server not to automatically reboot if a bluescreen occurs so
    that you can see it (if one is happening) Start/Control
    Panel/System/Advanced tab/Startup and Recovery section click the Settings
    button and uncheck Automatically restart.


    Hope that helps,

    Then why are you using NAV on the desktop? You should be using OfficeScan,
    managed from the server. At any rate, I was talking about the realtime file
    scanning on the server, not the clients.
