Lost connection..?

Lost connection..?

Lost connection..?

Hi all,

I have a server (Win2003)that sometimes loses connetion with the network without apparent reason.
Last time the server lost connection there were no activity on the server and after a restart connection where up and running again.
After a few weeks the problem comes back.

Can it something wrong with the network card?

RE: Lost connection..?

I assume by "network" you mean - physical connection, and not just the inability to get to some resource.

If that's the case, it's most likely your server since a reboot/restart fixes the problem.

If it were a flaky switch port or a bad cable, that wouldn't normally fix anything (although sometimes disconnecting/reconneting a cable will make a swith port straighten up for a while).

Find a spare port on your local switch and move the cable connection. If the problem happens again it's problably your NIC.

If I check my Eventviewer I find:

The Security System detected an authentication error for the server
DNS/dns1.MyDNS.se. The failure code from authentication protocol Kerberos
was "There are currently no logon servers available to service the logon request.

The system failed to register host (A) resource records (RRs) for network adapter

with settings:
