Our Exchange 2000 SP3 server runing for 2 years now on W2k AdvancedServer
with all available SPs ran in trouble yesterday:
store.exe began using 100% CPU time. This occured during normal operation.
After restarting store.exe it begins as a normal operation but after 2 - 15
min it runs in the same situation - rebooting the whole machine, too.
One thing comes to it all now: The W2k-RAID5 with the whole ADS &
Exchang-Stuff on it has the status "rebuilding" but there is no entry in my
event-log about this or any other possible reasons! (And of course it will
take 3 days to rebuild this highly used device with another process takeking
all the cpu-time!)
The Server is working as usual but extremely slow. Sometimes (as I feel in
some moments Im trying to stop some services) I get messages from
etc.) is set to "unknown".
PIII-733MHz, 1GB RAM, 1 IDE System Disk, 3 IDE HDDs as an RAID5 with the
whole ADS & Exchang-Stuff, 1 SCSI Disk with swapfile.
XS SP3, W2k as above, Symantec Antivirus&Filtering for Exchange 3.02, GFI
stopping all other apps and services brings us nothing ahaed, neither
stopping / disableing Symantec nor FAXMaker bettered the situation. Also
updated manually new VirusDefs, watched ebentlog, looked into the queues
a.s.o. - nothing gave me any hint about that all!
Does anybody has some ideas left?
