Exchange locks up almost every weekend-Please Help! RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    We are running exchange server 2003 on SBS2003. For the past couple of months it has been locking up every Sat. night. I have to remote in Sunday morning and either restart the Information Store service or restart the server. It seems like I have to restart the server more times than not because when I try and restart the Information Store service it fails to start, or stops responding. There are no scheduled tasks running that would interfere with the exchange server, and it runs fine throughout the week. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Scott

    Scheduled tasks not withstanding, something's happening on Saturday
    night that's different to every other night.

  • Hi PrecoptIT,

    The issue maybe caused by many reasones, we could not point what is the exact reason without information. :)
    So, I would suggest that you could check the event log firstly, and then narrow down the issue.
    You also could use EXBPA to retrieve more information about your exchange email system to confirm the issue.

    Regards!
