Lost connection..?

Lost connection..?

Lost connection..?

(OP)
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.

dane77,

Thanks!

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:
Adapter Name : {DDCD65F0-1AA7-4019-BBD2-F65CC8A7DA49}
